A piece of History - The Royal Baths Harrogate
For Wide angle Wednesday, here is a wide shot of the Royal Baths.
In front are the barriers for the current cycling championships in town.
In the past, the Harrogate Royal Baths have long been a magnet for the rich and famous. In Victorian times, Royalty would amuse themselves by racing their bathchairs through the Harrogate streets towards the Baths. The Royal Baths claim to the jewel in the spa’s architectural crown. For years, however, the buildings were in a somewhat derelict state but are now an important attraction.
