Nidderdale, historically referred to as Netherdale, holds a significant place among the Yorkshire Dales, despite being situated just outside the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North Yorkshire. This picturesque region encompasses the upper valley of the River Nidd, which meanders southward underground before emerging to trace its path along the dale. Along its journey, the river forms several reservoirs, including the notable Gouthwaite Reservoir, before veering eastward and eventually converging with the River Ouse. The quaint town of Pateley Bridge stands as the sole urban center within this charming dale.

In centuries past, Nidderdale resided within the West Riding of Yorkshire, nestled within the Lower Division of Claro Wapentake. During the extensive local government reforms of the 19th century, the governance structure evolved, with the majority of the Dale falling under the jurisdiction of the Pateley Bridge Poor Law Union. This later transitioned into the Pateley Bridge Rural Sanitary District and, from 1894, the Pateley Bridge Rural District. Subsequently, in 1937, this rural district was amalgamated to form part of the Ripon and Pateley Bridge Rural District.

Meanwhile, the lower dale, encompassing Hampsthwaite and Felliscliffe, was associated with the Knaresborough Poor Law Union. This administrative region evolved into the Knaresborough Rural Sanitary District and later the Knaresborough Rural District, which, in 1938, merged to become part of the Nidderdale Rural District.

Since the restructuring of administrative boundaries in 1974, the entirety of Nidderdale has fallen within the jurisdiction of the Borough of Harrogate in North Yorkshire. This amalgamation underscores the rich history and evolving administrative landscape that have shaped this idyllic region over the centuries.
