Welcome to Rivington - The home of great water...
Rivington is home to some of the most beautiful countryside in the North West. It's also the home of some of the best water, and we hope you'll help us to keep it that way. These moors and valleys collect the rainwater that ends up in taps from Wigan to Liverpool.
Upper Roddlesworth, Lower Roddlesworth, and Rake Brook reservoirs are near Brinscall, Chorley. These three feed into a channel called The Goit, which was originally an open stream but was covered over in the early 1900s to protect it from local industry and keep it clean. The Goit carries this water into Anglezarke reservoir which, along with Yarrow and High Bullough reservoirs, feeds through into Upper and Lower Rivington.
