Normal for Pool

For those familiar with the ups and downs of the River Wharfe this will not be an unusual sight. Whilst walking in the Recreation Ground is limited we will be anxiously looking forward to what remains as the river retreats.

When this photograph was taken at noon 25 September 2012 the Environment Agency were issuing this flood warning for Wetherby. ‘River levels on the Wharfe are rising following recent heavy rainfall. The current level at Flint Mill is 2.4 metres and will continue to rise. Further rainfall is forecast today.’


Hiccup in newsletter attachment

Our latest newsletter email distribution suffered 44 rejections, a number of recipients’ servers were sensitive to our content. Omission of one photograph and an article appeared to solve the problem, and we are pleased to post these for our website viewers:

‘Mucho macho The generosity of the Whiteley family is well recorded, and we are grateful to Pool Archives for this photograph taken during the fund-raising for the village memorial hall built in 1958.What is striking is the male representation and representatives, something we may now consider unusual.’
