Angram Reservoir is the first of three reservoirs on the River Nidd in Upper Nidderdale, North Yorkshire, England, the others being Scar House Reservoir and finally the compensation reservoir Gouthwaite Reservoir. It is located at OS map reference SE040759. Between them they attract around 150,000 visitors a year.
The reservoir takes its name from Angram, a settlement in the township of Stonebeck Up, submerged when the reservoir was built.
Nidderdale is recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty surrounded by wild, rugged and remote land with spectacular views. Little and Great Whernside are the two summits on the ridge to the north and to the west of Angram Reservoir. They reach heights of 605 and 704 metres above sea level.
Angram and Scar House were built to supply water to the Bradford area of West Yorkshire. Water from here is transferred to Chellow Heights via the Nidd Aqueduct, which is a major engineering achievement as it doesn't involve any pumping.
Two bypass channels on each side of the reservoir were used to bypass the reservoir and maintain the level of the River Nidd. After Scar House Reservoir was constructed, these become obsolete, but control machinery can still be seen on the Nidd and Stone beck inlets.
|Dam height||61m / 200ft|
There is a shelter near the dam, but no other facilities. Near the dam of Scar House Reservoir, 2 km from the dam of Angram Reservoir, there is a car park, picnic areas and toilets. A private road, not open to the public, links the two dams.
