    I\'m sure this site is on a footpath from Lothersdale road, Crosshills near Keighley to Cononley over a hill called the Gibb,The views on the film are of the Aire valley you can see the river Aire and the railway line. The buildings in the bottom left hand are a farm at the bottom of Cononley brow road. The ruins of the reservoir are still there and the path goes over the damaged walls.
