Black clouds over Carr Mill reservoir 12.5.2021.
Carr Mill reservoir near St Helens in North West England was built to provide water for early mills in the Blackbrook river valley. It then went on to provide water for the Sankey, or St Helens canal which was in commercial use from 1757 until 1963. The reservoir today is still maintained by the Canal and River Trust and is a popular place for walking and fishing and is home to The Lancashire Power boat racing club. Parts of the canal are still in water and there is a active restoration society which would like to restore the canal all the way back through St Helens, Newton le Willows and Warrington to where it joins the River Mersey at Spike Island.
