Learn all about Trimpley's history

    Why was the reservoir created here?

    The reservoir was created to supplement the Elan Valley pipeline, which brings wonderful Welsh water all the way to
Birmingham to supply our customers.

    What was here before?

    Before the reservoir was built the land belonged to part of Eymore Farm, and so was mainly agricultural in use.

    How long did it take to build the Reservoir?

    The construction on the reservoir started in 1964 and was completed in 1968.

    What is the Reservoirs role in the water supply network?

    The top reservoir provides water to the Elan Valley Aqueduct which in turn supplies water to Birmingham, Mamble and Tenbury.

    Where does the water come from?

    The reservoir has no natural feed, and so the water is pumped from
    the nearby River Severn.  This is then spread over the collecting pool,
    and piped to the waterworks to be treated and filtered.

    How deep and big is the reservoir?

    The reservoirs’ perimeter is 29 acres and it is approximately 3ft deep. This increases to 40ft by the valve tower.
