This is in a pile of other large pieces of worked stone near the dam of Upper Barden Reservoir. The date of 1860 is the completion date of Lower Barden Reservoir: the upper reservoir was not completed until 1882.

BCWW stands for Bradford Corporation Water Works. A good water supply was essential for the wool industry and Bradford was rich enough to construct distant reservoirs and a good supply infrastructure.

Their final project was the enlargement of Grimwith Reservoir, started in 1970 and completed in 1983, just in time for the demise of the wool industry and the privatization of the water supply.
