Chapelhouse Reservoir is a water reservoir near Uldale in Cumbria.


The reservoir, which is around 435 meters long, was built by John Laing & Son in around 1900.[1] It involved damming the River Ellen above Uldale to provide water for Aspatria and Silloth.[1] It is named after Chapelhouse Farm which is close by and it is owned by United Utilities.[2]
