The Longdendale Trail also forms part of the Trans Pennine Trail that runs coast to coast across the UK from Southport in Merseyside to Hornsea in The East Riding of Yorkshire.The Longdendale Trail follows part of the former Great Central Railway.

The reservoirs were completed in 1877 & were, at the time, the largest artificial expanse of water in the world. The line itself was closed in 1981 amid much controversy.
