Laneshaw Brook on Emmott Moor

The River Laneshaw is a river in Northern England. It runs for 1.9 miles (3 km) from Laneshaw Reservoir to Laneshaw Bridge alongside the A6068 road[1] and has a catchment area of 5.1 square miles (13.2 km2).[2]

Rising as Laneshaw Brook on Combe Hill between the border of Lancashire and Yorkshire, the brook runs northwards, feeding first Laneshaw Reservoir then running westwards as the River Laneshaw.[3]

The River Laneshaw combines with Wycoller Beck at Covey Bridge to form Colne Water.[4]
