Some of the links on this site are affiliate links. That means that we may get a small commission if you click that link and buy something. These links do not change the price for you and they don’t change anything about what you see. If you use our affiliate links we’ll be really grateful because it will help us to pay for the costs of running this site, and if we can keep this site running then we can keep writing about what really interests us, and hopefully you – the history of Harrogate. These links don’t have any effect on what we write about or the opinions we express.
