Recreation

Chelmarsh Reservoir

The 100 acre Chelmarsh Reservoir is set in the rolling Shropshire countryside between Bridgnorth and Bewdley, near to the village of Highley.

It was built in 1963 to store water pumped from the nearby River Severn. The water is sent via the well-known ‘blue pipe’ bridge over the River Severn to be treated at Hampton Loade Treatment Works before it’s piped to surrounding towns in the Midlands.

Kinver Freeliners Angling Club

Fishing rights at the reservoir are controlled by Kinver Freeliners Angling Club.

Sailing Club
