Local history days

Nidderdale and the surrounding area have a rich and varied local history.
Why not study the use of water in the valley over the last 150 years, from the rise of the waterwheels to power the Flax Mills to the building of Scar, Angram and Gouthwaite reservoirs with their associated village at Scar.

Alternatively you could study mining and quarrying in our valley from Roman times to the modern day Coldstones Quarry with its impressive viewing platform.
