View of Baildon Reservoirs with Baildon in the background and the golf club around the walls of the reservoir
The reservoirs, on a 3.5-acre site, were built in the 1850s to get fresh water to Baildon. The village had one of the highest death rates in the country because of water-borne diseases and up to 25 households would use the same toilet.
