Odgen Reservoir is one of five in the Piethorne Valley where there is still a Bleach and Dye works. This park has undergone vastly improved facilities including  an amazing climbing ‘boulder’. Tandle Hill was used as a meeting place for radicals in 19th c. and was used for practicing marching and drilling in the lead-up to the Peterloo Massacre. It was gifted to the people of Royton in 1919 and is now a country park. A war memorial obelisk, trig point and viewing indicator are at the top showing that it is 25 miles to Jodrell Bank and 7.5 miles to Manchester City Centre. A hall at Chadderton Hall Park was first built in 13th c. and at the end of 19th c. it became a public park with boating lake and a menagerie including a kangaroo and a lion.
