Photo taken one November, the old building has been renovated and is the boathouse for the Leeds & Bradford Model Boat Club (2017).

Editor’s Note: I have not been round Yeadon Dam since 1969, and it is such a shame to see one of the number of old buildings used for people to rest in, in such disrepair and or have disappeared all together. I spent many an hour fishing by the side of these buildings in the late 50s and early 60s. Jack Brayshaw. 16 July 2021.

A capsized craft on the Tarn (Dam), the occupant is attempting to get it upright.

A comment from Howard Chadwick who kindly donated this image to us:
“To be picky the boat is not capsized until the mast hits the water and it is more than likely that this young lady who is an accomplished sailor actually saved this apparently terminal incident.”
