Comment
1: A winter view of Yeadon Dam (Tarn), looking towards Warren House Lane.

2: The large rectangle was apparently a bandstand, in the background is Crompton Mill.

3: The Dam was a popular place to visit at holiday times, here we see children playing in the water and every bench fully occupied.
Teas were served from the building next to the path.

4: Various boats on the Tarn (Dam) including rowing boats which were hired out by the Council.
In the middle of the view is the brick building where tea could be bought on Sundays and holiday times.

5: View of the Tarn looking in the direction of the Coney Park Plantation and Novia Wood.
 
6: Sailing on the Tarn or Dam as most people in Yeadon call it.
 
7: Dinghies are tied up to the jetty, a man is fishing and two boys are going for a paddle, definitely not allowed to dip a toe in the water now! (August 2015)

A tranquil scene, the paddle and rowing boats were for hire, the hut was the ticket office.

A painted sign on the bench reads "For Use of Boat Customers Only".

A peaceful scene with yachts out on the water.

The photograph as it says is undated the date in brackets indicates the date that the satetment was made.
It may be in years to come that swimming is allowed again so it will be interesting to date the time when it was not.
