Flood Protection Gates for Silsden Beck

It has been about two years in the planning and construction,  of the flood gates which will prevent a repeat of past floods of St Johns Street, Silsden. The idea was first conceived several years ago but getting permission has not been straight forward as several agencies have an interest in Silsden Beck.
