Midwinter in Harogate

Winter in cold delight during the long night.

Harrogate in Betties is best to avoid the fright.

We were not wanting to sit with you.

We wanted the table in the window with the view.

Sit warm and wait for tea. Listen to the soft clinking as hungry shoppers refine their chatter.

Snow falling, wind howling, oh the delight of the Harrogate night.
