Harlow Carr Gardens to stay closed until further notice

The RHS announced earlier this morning that Harlow Carr, along with their three other gardens around the country, would be closed today.

The owner of a local business based in the Yorkshire Dales has contacted Stray FM raising concerns about increased visitors to Malhamdale.

They've told us..

"Please can you ask people to stay away from Malhamdale.

Yesterday we saw record numbers of visitors with the village over-run.

Harrogate's Harlow Carr Gardens closed

The RHS have announced this morning that four of their gardens, including Harlow Carr in Harrogate will be closed today.
