Otley, Wharfeside Mills & Weir

Recent destruction of part of the weir flushed away significant archaeological evidence. The archaeological wood revealed is now either silted up in the riverbank, washed away, or removed by persons unknown. The authors here reveal their research and illustrate the surviving timbers.

Otley Allotments

Many of the town's allotments are derived from the Smallholding and Allotments Act of 1908. More were created during compulsory purchase under DORA in the First World War. This article summarises their historical development.
