Now when I say this is small I really do mean small. But, like me, well looked after and in not too bad a shape. If you are visiting the waterfront, just cross the road and walk the flat 100 yards or so to have...More

On a nice day lots of children in Our Lady of the Crag lighting candles - if you want to go at a quiet time/pace then see their facebook page for details of special openings - wonderful gardeners

Thank you very much for your review. As you say we do get busy on nice days but we are more than happy to open for those wanting a more personal, quiet time at the chapel.

Interesting little place but only open at certain times and dates so contact them in advance. We visited on a closed day but we didn't mind as you can still get right up and see the chapel itself. Very quaint.

This is well worth a visit if you're in the Harrogate / Knaresborough area. Completely funded by donations and maintained by just 6 volunteers. It is a beautiful spot and although open " officially " on Sundays 2-4pm, if you email them they will, if...More

Unfortunately, this is only open on Sundays and, as I was there on a Monday it was closed. Possibly a very interesting place, but I guess that I will never know. Hence my average rating.More

Due to the very infrequent opening hours, we were only able to see the chapel from the road. What could be seen looked to be of interest, but probably not worth making a special point of visiting. Sign by the road gives a brief history.

The nearest public car park can be found on waterside (HG5 8DF) this is roughly 5 minutes walk away. There are parking spaces on Abbey road by the Half moon pub although theses are very limited.
