Leeds Road, Harrogate, 1999
This is Leeds Road, the A61, looking south away from Harrogate centre towards Oatlands Mount. Obviously, the road in the foreground in Tewit Well Avenue.

Immediately beyond the traffic lights is St George's roundabout; beneath the roundabout and extending a few hundred yards to the left under Langcliffe Avenue is the 'Harrogate Tunnel' built in the mid-1840s to carry the railway line from York and Wetherby into Harrogate's Brunswick Station. This station was opened in 1848 but closed in 1862 when the railway line was diverted via a cutting in The Stray to a new station in what was becoming the centre of town. Brunswick Station's location is marked by a rough boulder with an attached plaque, opposite Trinity Church.

The position of the start of Harrogate Tunnel near Hornbeam Station can be seen at SE3153 : Hornbeam Railway Station, Harrogate, 1999.
