Photos: Farnley Reservoir at sunset

Farnley Reservoir at sunset has been caught on camera by West Leeds Dispatch reader Daniel Riley.

As reported last week, Mr Riley has launched an online petition for greater safety and a cleaning up of the reservoir itself.

The Farnley resident has grown concerned about what he says is a lack of lifesaving equipment around the reservoir if people fall in. He’s also concerned about the maintenance of the reservoir and the number of objects dumped or thrown in it.

Mr Riley’s petition can be signed here.

Farnley balancing reservoir helps store rain water that flows off properties and roads in the area and holds it in the pond to prevent flooding further down the valley in Wortley.

Do you have a photo of West Leeds you’d like to share, email is at and we’ll use the best.
