Scargill Reservoir
Scargill Reservoir
Scargill is one of four reservoirs in the Haverah Park area to the west of Harrogate. In 1846 the Harrogate Waterworks Company was created and constructed a reservoir on Harlow Hill. In 1869 they gained permission through an act of parliament for the construction of a series of reservoirs in Haverah Park in order to supply the rapidly growing spa town. Ten Acre reservoir and the two Beaver Dyke reservoirs were constructed by the company, but Scargill was not begun until the HWC was bought out by Harrogate corporation for 205,000 in 1897. Scargill was completed c1900 and was the last reservoir in this area, Harrogate corporation being forced to look elsewhere [Burn valley to the west of Masham] for further supplies.
