Anglezarke

Anglezarke is just north of Winter Hill and contains the areas of next highest ground - a wide expanse of wild moorland cut by interesting valleys and streams, most notably the Limestone Brook and Leadmines Clough.

The Anglezarke Reservoir is most northerly of the three “Rivington Lakes”, arguably the most scenic of the three and the most peaceful - being away from the tourists. There is a nice nature walk on the eastern shore below a fantastic viewpoint.

Anglezarke Moor as the upland area is called is ‘proper’ moorland but there are plenty of paths to follow and interesting things to find along the way.
