A Walk Around New Park, Harrogate
New Park, Skipton Road, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, HG1 3HF

This is a walk around the industrial and working-class suburb of New Park, Harrogate. It looks at the area as it is today and with photographs at how it was in the past.

New Park was developed as an industrial suburb along the main Skipton and Ripon Roads from the 1840s. It had the town's gas and electricity works plus quarries and an industrial laundry. Workers' housing was built and the district had a pub, shops, chapels, school and an institute. It became a thriving community.
