Grove House (Springfield Healthcare), Skipton Road, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, HG1 4LA
Visit the house and grounds of this Grade II listed building, the former home of Samson Fox, Harrogate's famous engineering inventor, benefactor, and mayor.
Grove House began as a coaching inn in the early 18th century. It was greatly expanded from the 1880s as Samson Fox's home and workplace and has since been used as a school, hospital, orphanage, and convalescent home. It will soon be converted into a care village by Springfield Healthcare, its current owners.
