High Tor Guest House, 1945-50

Suspension Bridge

The Dale and High Tor in 1909. The small building next to the blacksmith's shop on the riverbank opposite the gates of Tor Cottage, shown in the previous picture, has gone and the blacksmith's itself seems to have been rebuilt and now has a corrugated iron flat roof.

The long sign is, disappointingly, just an advertising hoarding - "Drink Hills Chain Ales and Stouts".

The turbulent water in the river was caused by rocks on the river bed, the remains of a former weir.
