Scar House Reservoir

Address

Lofthouse Harrogate N Yorkshire HG3 5SW

This stunning reservoir built in the 1930 from over 1 million tons of masonry stands 55 metres tall above the River Nidd and is a popular spot for walkers, cyclists and sightseers. Building the reservoir in such a remote spot necessitated not only the building a railway up the valley, but also a temporary village to house the workers who built it.  The village include a cinema and post office, and the remains of both the village and the Railway can still be seen next to the reservoir which is access by road from the village of Lofthouse that follows the track bed of the now dismantled railway.
