A Guardian reader who recently paid a visit to the Old Leyland Reservoir in Clayton-le-Woods has made a documentary video about the experience.

Gary Cunliffe visited the Back Lane reservoir during its two-week opening to the public - before it is demolished to make way for houses to be built on land above it.

Children from Manor Road Primary School took some audio recordings of the guide’s talk (Boyd Harris), and Gary has incorporated this into his video footage.

The reservoir is now closed once again, but more than 7,000 people visited the historic landmark in October.
