Thruscross Reservoir

Thruscross Reservoir, West End, in the Washburn Valley, Yorkshire Dales

Thruscross Reservoir is situated near the head of the Washburn Valley, beneath which the old village of West End 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...
