    Manchester lies 35 miles from the sea on a flat plain near The Pennines. The principal river of Manchester is the River Irwell, which springs from the West Pennines above Bacup. The Irwell joins the Mersey at Irlam, eight miles from Manchester and 17 metres above sea level.

    The Pennine Hills that frame the northern and eastern borders form a wall to the west, facing Manchester and slope gently away to the east. The highest hill in the area is Kinder Scout. The hills are largely composed of millstone grit. The healthy absence of dissolved lime in these rocks ensures that local water stored in reservoirs is ‘soft’.
