Chellow Dene Wetlands: Chellow Dene is a local beauty spot on the western outskirts of Bradford City which can be reached by public transport. Although within the City boundaries Chellow Dene reservoirs lie within a quiet wooded valley and are a haven for wildlife including herons and owls. The reservoirs were constructed by Bradford Corporation in Victorian times to provide a

stable water supply for the people of Bradford. The upper reservoir was the first to be built, in 1844, and has a capacity of 197,000 cubic metres. The lower reservoir constructed in 1853 has a capacity of 141,000 cubic metres. The reservoirs are no longer used to provide a water supply and were acquired by Bradford Council in 1974 and are maintained for recreational purposes.
