Sometimes known as Tingley Reservoir, East West Ardsley Reservoir or West Ardsley Reservoir due to its location between Tingley, Woodkirk, and East Ardsley, Ardsley Reservoir is one of Yorkshire Water's many reservoirs. Looking out over Emley Moor, at 120 acres it is used to provide the area with drinking water, as well as the nearby Coca Cola plant.
The reservoir is unusual as it is not fed by rivers and streams, rather it holds water delivered from other sources. The water has travelled sometimes as far as Ripponden and Barnsley!
