Yorkshire A to Y

Gazetteer

Harrogate district  X 

Harrogate borough is of the seven large district authorities which make up the modern administrative county of North Yorkshire and extends over 505 square miles.

Much of the western half of the district is made up of the hills and reservoir-filled valleys of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty while in the east it stretches as far as the Rivers Swale and Ouse in the Vale of York.

The administrative centre is in Harrogate and the wide area includes a few smaller towns, dozens of villages and also a city — Ripon, which is historically the second city of Yorkshire.

The district population of over 160,000 ranks it 13th out of 20 districts wholly within Yorkshire and it has the largest population among the districts of North Yorkshire.

Latest local authority changes proposed by the Government propose the scrapping of this district from 2023 and combining it with the other six North Yorkshire districts as a unitary North Yorkshire authority covering more than 3,100 square miles.
