was the Angler's Inn, established in 1760 (Speight p.470) and the landlord
was John Inman. One Henry Ovington lived at the inn in 1797 when a meeting
of landowners took place to discuss the enclosure of the land in the area
(Baistrick p 54). In 1882 the licence was given up, the property then owned
by Mr. Tennant of Chapel House (q.v.),and the nearby Tennant Arms was
established. A. Raistrick, Old Yorkshire Dales, 1967. H. Speight,
Upper Wharfedale, 1903
