Deanhead Reservoir is a reservoir near Scammonden, in the metropolitan district of Kirklees, West Yorkshire, England.

It is named after Dean Head, a village that was mostly submerged during construction of the dam. Construction started in 1838 and it opened a year later, almost 140 years before Scammonden Reservoir (its downstream neighbour) was opened in 1971.[2][3] Water flowing out of Deanhead forms Black Burne Brook which now feeds into Scammonden Water.[4] Deanhead reservoir was originally constructed to supply water to the factories in the Blackburn Valley that was downstream of the reservoir.[5] During the 1995 drought, the outlines of foundations of buildings in the village were visible.

Deanhead also is the name of a Pennine pass to the south of the reservoir, which carries the A640 from Huddersfield to Denshaw, following the course of a Roman road.
