Location description from owner

The Yorkshire region

North Yorkshire is England's largest county and one of the most rural. The area comprises of the Yorkshire Dales, North Yorkshire Moors, Vale of York and the coastal region. Each region has it's own distinct, natural beauty and charm.

Wild, windswept and wonderful, the North York Moors are a breath of fresh air. Comprising over 1,400 miles of natural beauty, this enchanting region is home to heather moorland, pine forests, rolling hills and shimmering coastline, not to mention badgers, roe deer, red squirrels and hawks. Look closer and you'll discover historic abbeys, castles and priories, traditional pubs and 'hidden' villages and hamlets.

Summerbridge

Thruscross Reservoir is the northernmost of four reservoirs in the Washburn valley, lying north of Otley and west of Harrogate in North Yorkshire, England. It can be found from the A59 road. Thruscross was completed in 1966, much later than the other three reservoirs which date back to the nineteenth century.

The construction of the reservoir flooded the village of West End, which was already largely derelict following the decline of the flax industry. The remains of a flax mill can be seen at the edge of the reservoir, and more of the village has been revealed at times of drought, such as the summers of 1989 and 1990.

The reservoir is the property of Yorkshire Water, which manages it for the benefit of walkers, anglers and wildlife.

In the novel In a Dry Season by the English-born, Canadian-based crime writer Peter Robinson, the fictional village of Hobb's End, flooded by the creation of the Thornfield Reservoir, is exposed during a drought, leading to the discovery of a body. The geography described by Robinson indicates that he based the location of Hobb's End on the village of West End. The small bridge over the Washburn becomes the 'Fairy Bridge' and the flax mill is mentioned explicitly.

Fitting unobtrusively between the valleys of Lower Wharfedale and Lower Nidderdale, the Washburn Valley is probably one of the least famous of the main Yorkshire Dales - despite its close proximity to the popular towns of Harrogate, Otley and the city of Leeds.

Overlooked by Menwith Hill and with its several reservoirs (Thruscross, Fewston, Swinsty and Lindley Wood) and fir plantations the Washburn Valley differs in character to the wilder beauty of some of the surrounding dales, though it is still well worth a visit.

Of particular interest is the quaintly named village of Blubberhouses, and near the head of the valley the Thruscross Reservoir at West End, where the village of the same name was submerged when the valley was flooded on completion of the dam. Local fokelore maintains that when the level of water is low the old church bell tower can still be seen, its ghostly bell ringing out as a sinister lament for the lost village...

Existing villages in the valley include Blubberhouses, Leathley, Lindley and Timble (near Otley)
