A number of members have asked us about the area cleared in the woods next to Harlow Moor Road.

We have had no prior warning of any works and seeking confirmation on full details from Harrogate Council. We know from North Yorkshire County Council that works are taking place to improve footpaths and add a pedestrian island as part of the recent Miller Homes development.

Path Closure - 7th to 10th Aug Mon, 2018-08-06 16:43

As part of planned repairs the middle path from the War Memorial to Harlow Moor Road will be closed from Tue 7th Aug to Fri 10th Aug. This will allow for areas of the path to be cleared and any major holes filled with chipped stone. This work is urgently needed and best done in dry weather that we fortunately have had recently. This will mean that the Woodland Fairy Door Walk will become more if a linear walk for these 4 days but should be back open for this weekend.
