Errwood Reservoir

About the waters

Errwood Reservoir is a drinking-water reservoir in the Peak District National Park, Derbyshire, close to the counties of Cheshire and Staffordshire. The reservoir was the second of two reservoirs built by flooding the Goyt Valley, the other one being Fernilee Reservoir, to which EFFC also has fishing access. It was constructed by the Stockport Water Corporation at a cost of £1.5 million, with work being completed in 1967.

Errwood is currently owned and operated by United Utilities. The reservoir provides drinking water for the town of Stockport and its surrounding areas, and when full holds 4,215 million litres of water.

In addition to Errwood Reservoir, EFFC also controls fishing, for Club Members, on Fernilee Reservoir, which offers challenging fishing for wild brown trout and perch. The Club also holds regular, fun competitions and currently offers affiliated angling on other trout waters in the region
