More about this scene

Caption for Middlesmoor, The Village C1950: The most northerly village in Nidderdale is Middlesmoor, consisting of a church and a few cottages. Beyond here is Scar House Reservoir, providing water for Bradford. During the construction a small village was established in these desolate hills dominated by Great Whernside. Between 1893 and 1936, up to 1,250 people worked here - the village of Scar was self-contained, with its own hospital, concert hall, reading room, shops and cinema.

Memories of Middlesmoor

As children we stayed at North Side Head in Middlesmoor .. the farmer was called Tom Whitfield, his wife was Mirriam. We stayed in the cottage next door to the farm. As children we fed orphan lambs and collected eggs and had a wonderful freedom ... Happy days
