So.. we did indeed go and watch the planes from Leeds Bradford’s intergalactic airport. It looks like they are re-doing the upstairs bit of the airport there. You can’t get to the upstairs pub bit at the moment, and the toilets are now a collections of portaloo’s outside.
Anyway – the ‘observatory crest’ as I have christened it is a top spot, only recently discovered. If you want to get there : from Harrogate, head for Bradford. Under the runway bridge straight on. At Murgatroids traffic lights, hang a left. Take the first dirt track on your left. Careful – there’s some massive pot holes !
