Scar House.

Is this plate on the aqueduct-looking-structure in your Nidderdale post?

It's the dam at Scar House reservoir. One of the reasons Yorkshire water was always so cold and with decent pressure. Being able to drink tap water with any pleasure is one of the few things I deeply miss here in sea level Virginia with its tepid, sluggish and heavily chlorinated flow.

Hopefully yours up there in Vermont is rather better.

Forgive me for butting in OSM but I couldnt't resist a chance to rant about the sorry state of American drinking water.

Mind you I was weaned off the real Yorkshire stuff by 10 years in Gloucestershire. They always said it had passed through 3 Welshmen before it go to you in Gloucester. Certainly tasted like it.
