The reservoir from the east bank River Churnet, the main feeder to the reservoir

The Tittesworth site is just 25 minutes drive from Macclesfield, nestling in the north Staffordshire Moorlands, three miles north of Leek. The site is owned by Severn Trent Water Ltd and provides public amenities (car park, visitor centre, cafe, children's playground, fishing) but is managed for the benefit of wildlife.

There are two nature trails, the longest encompassing the reservoir (approx five miles). There are two bird hides overlooking the Conservation Pool at the northern end of the site. The varied habitat - woodland, meadows, a large body of water and feeder streams - has attracted about 215 different species of birds over the years. In a typical year 130 to 140 bird species will reside on or will be attracted to the site.
