OS Wallpaper Download: October 2022 - Heapey Reservoir No.3, Lancashire by Chris Denny
The changing colours make autumn one of the most exciting seasons to photograph. This image was taken by Chris Denny in 2013, and shows the range from warm reds to bright yellows as the trees prepare for winter dormancy.
The valley between Chorley and the Anglezarke moors near Corley, Lancashire contains a sequence of reservoirs, imaginatively named Heapey Reservoirs 1 - 6, now the preserve of anglers and also popular for walking and birdwatching. They were originally built in the 1850s to provide water and steam power to local cotton, linen and bleaching factories, now long since closed down.
The reservoirs have excellent Carp, Perch and occasional Pike fishing, while a network of local footpaths allow you to explore the area, or head up onto the moors.
