Readycon Dean reservoir & the River Tame’s origin

Readycon Dean reservoir

A panoramic shot of Readycon Dean reservoir – which is situated high up on the Pennine moors in Denshaw – showing the thin entry channel of what eventually becomes the River Tame once water is discharged from the reservoir sluices. The water then flows onwards to Delph and beyond through Uppermill, Mossley, Stalybridge, Ashton-under-Lyne and Hyde before joining the River Goyt at Stockport and finally becoming the River Mersey.
