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, a school and an institute. It became a thriving community.
