1910 Map of the Village Shewing Proposed Water Supply Route

This map was produced by Skipton Rural District Council in 1910 to show the proposed improvements to the village water supply. These maps are always interesting in that they show the layout of the village at that time. Points of interest: Chapel Garth was still two cottages, there are buildings on the south side of Chapel Lane, and High Dene was called Prospect House.

We suspect that the existing water supply referred to was the first supply installed in 1862 by John Varley, a civil engineer then living in Burnsall. This was laid along Main Street and provided a domestic water supply from the three troughs.
