Nidderdale Hidden village reappears

Very cool. Hopefully no dead bodies have been found.

I wonder if it will fan the flames of the Nidderdale Peoples Front and their quest for independence. Will we see Cofiwch Scar House being sprayed on bus stops county-wide I wonder!

Once we've sorted out that dodgy lot over the brow of Great Whernside the revolution will up a gear...

I wondered if there was any engineering work going on at Angram.

Our club were up there on the 26th and we noted a lot of surface flooding ...much more than Bingley where I live. Because working on the surface we did not go see the reservoir but surprised to hear its full already

Is this ongoing hosepipe ban in North Yorkshire really still necessary? I mean, what a pain trying to get caving gear clean when you can't blast it properly with water! Anyone know when it might be called off? Last time I looked at YW's website there was loads of information about the hosepipe ban but no clue as to when it's likely to end. (There is a lot of stuff explaining why it'sstill continuing, even though we've endured weeks of pestilential weather.)

Scar House and Gouthwaite have certainly filled quite quickly. Talking to a cyclist who’d done the loop round Scar House it appears Angram is also full.
