The Tonge is formed at the Meeting of the Waters, where Astley Brook, flowing from the Smithills area in the west, meets the southerly-flowing Eagley Brook. From there, the Tonge flows southwards, to the east of Bolton, past Springfield, where it is joined by Bradshaw Brook, at the end of its route from the Jumbles and Wayoh reservoirs, close to Tonge Fold. The Tonge joins the River Croal at Darcy Lever, shortly before the Croal’s confluence with the River Irwell.
