Walshaw Dean Reservoirs

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Walshaw Dean Reservoirs are three reservoirs situated above Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, England. They are between Hebden Bridge and Top Withins, a ruined farmhouse near Haworth, the reputed inspiration for "Wuthering Heights" in the novel of the same name by Emily Brontë.[1]

The reservoirs' catchments are dominated by peatland habitats.[2] The reservoirs drain into the Calder Valley.

On 19 May 1989 Walshaw Dean Lodge entered the UK Weather Records with the Highest 120-min total rainfall at 193 mm. As of June 2008 this record still stands (although the Met Office expresses 'reservations' about this value).[3]


The reservoirs were built by the corporation of Halifax.[4] During their construction, the narrow gauge Blake Dean Railway was used to get the navvies and the construction material to the construction sites.


The reservoirs are on the Pennine Way.
