Clough Head Service Reservoir – we’ve recently bought the old Waterhouse and land adjacent to the reservoir and may be able to provide some additional info for the site.
It seems that there may be two ‘Waterhouses’ in the Golcar area. I have just spoken with the person who lives in the one shown on the map on this site attached to the Clough Head Service Reservoir entry. I am now very confused. The one shown on the map is not in Clough Head but further up the hill on Taylors Road near the area defined as Dunkirk. The one that we live in is adjacent to Clough Head Reservoir which is still operational. The main tank may have been removed but the pressure relief system and metering units are still operational. The land was originally purchased by the Corporation in 1878 and a Water Board easement was registered in 1888 so the dates do match the entry. Can anyone help resolve the confusion?
