Harrogate Ringway

'We started the walk from next to a Ringway sign, just near the junction of Jennyfield Drive and Grantley Drive. Whilst hardly the most scenic spot on the route it is worth noting that when the Ringway was first devised in 1978 most of this area, now a major suburb of Harrogate, was still fields. Within minutes we'd crossed the A59 and for most of the rest of the walk it was surprising how little of Harrogate itself intruded on what is a mainly rural route ...'
