Underground Reservoir
More Pictures by Nikon D5000

Well like quite a few people we headed down to Clayton-le-Woods to have a look at the soon to be demolished underground resevoir, or cistern as I think there are sometimes called. Due to the fact that the developer wants to put up more houses in the area, this Victorian structure is going to be destroyed and filled in I assume much to the disgust of some people but before that happens, its open to the public for two weeks. Strangely enough it appeared to be less busy than I thought, so it wasn't much of a queue to get inside. It's not huge and there's not a great deal to see but it's still interesting. Of course I think I have been spoilt because last year we went to the Cistern in Istanbul which is huge, has water in it and has it's own cafe inside. It's also great in summer as it serves as great relief from the leat outside.
