It flows through 3 upland reservoirs Angram; scar house reservoir; and Gouthwaite Reservoir, when conditions are dry the river disappears underground into the sinkhole known as Manchester Hole, and reappears near the village of Lofthouse N Yorks. The first major settlement is Pateley Bridge past the beautiful Brimham rocks and on past Hampsthwaite, Knaresborough, Tockwith and Nun Monkton to the river Ouse.so come Fishing the twisty Mr Crabtree river Nidd.
