River Calder (Near Burnley)

Pendle Water is a minor river in Lancashire. Rising on Pendle Hill, Pendle Water cuts a deep valley between Barley Moor and Spence Hill, where it feeds into the reservoirs of Upper and Lower Ogden.

Upon exiting the lower reservoir, Pendle Water flows east through the picturesque villages of Barley and Roughlee, before collecting Blacko Water, which drains the valley at Water Meetings near Wheathead, a popular picnic spot one mile west of the village of Blacko. The river then flows south through Higherford and Barrowford where it is joined by Colne Water.

From this point onwards, the river flows west past the Lomeshaye Industrial Estate, alongside the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, towards its confluence with the River Calder in Reedley Hallows, which is northwest of Burnley. Pendle Water once supplied water to the Burnley Water Treatment Works, which is situated on Wood End Lane.

Flooding Incidents

On Tuesday, August 8, 1967, a flash flood caused devastation, in the village of Barrowford.[1] Work on the final phase, of a £4 million flood alleviation scheme in Barrowford, was completed by July 2006. The new flood defences seek to protect up to five hundred homes, and 18,000m² of industrial premises.[2] A new flood alleviation scheme, for Pendle Water, was opened in June 2006, by the then local MP, Gordon Prentice.[3]
