We were lucky enough to be allowed up “Harlow Hill Tower” the other day, a purpose built astronomical observatory. It’s Harrogate’s highest point – 700ft above sea level and it boast incredible views in all directions – up Nidderdale in one direction and The Vale of York with York Minster visible on a good day, in the other.
It was quite amazing how much you could see. As well as the Minster, you can see Ripon Cathedral, The White Horse, Drax and Ferrybridge power stations, the wind farm and Menwith – as well as some closer to home land marks, such as Grove Road, The Conference Centre and probably all of the church spires in Harrogate.
