Leeds Mercury (30/May/1930):

Passing Cartworth Reservoir on the right, I reached Snittlegate, where the shining oil lamps in the windows contrasted with the mills and machinery in the valley below. Turning left, Mount Pleasant and Magnum came into sight, the latter place having a little church of which the residents arc very proud. I was shown the inside of this church, and the information was volunteered to me that they have some “reight gooid times” there in winter. The pews and pulpit are “sided.” and while “th’owd uns are laking cards, t’young uns set to dancing.” And this is moorland 1,000 feet above sea level.
