More press coverage on Scargill

The Craven Herald's report on the Scargill closure. The Craven Herald is the local Skipton and the Dales newspaper -
District councillor for Upper Wharfedale, John Roberts, said he had canvassed villagers in Kettlewell for their reaction:

"They feel the closure will have quite an impact on local businesses - people resident there would come down to the pubs and the post office would have spin-off trade.
Local people are saddened by the closure, at the loss of jobs - which are few and far between in this area - and they are apprehensive about the future. ...
It will call for an inspirational architectural design because the site is so beautiful."
