c1950s. View shows the cottages at Dandy Row, Thwaite, alongside the River Aire. Dandy Row housed workers at Thwaite Mills, and was effectively an island, surrounded by the River Aire, the Aire & Calder Navigation, and the mill stream. They feature id displays at Thwaite Mills, now a museum, and were demolished in 1968.
Skelton Grange 'A' power station is visible behind the cottages, with two cooling towers at this time. Four more towers were added when the 'B' power station was built in the early 1960s, although one was demolished around 1982. The power station closed in 1995 and was then dismantled, but the associated substation still remains.
