Heritage Plaques - A talk by Malclom Neesam
20 Park Parade
We gathered in the elegant drawing room of 20 Park Parade for a talk on some of Harrogate’s plaques by Malcolm Neesam. The focus of this talk was on the ‘non-brown’ plaques and we learnt that the first plaque to be erected in Harrogate was a copper plate for the Spa Gardens which included details of Harrogate’s longitude, latitude, mean hours of sunshine and rainfall! Our host for the evening, Justin Kitson, gave us a very brief summary of the work that he had undertaken to restore the house.
