A new app showcasing walking trails of historic Harrogate locations has been launched.
Now a free app version, which includes trails for every brown heritage plaque in the town, is available.
It features seven walks, including the Starbeck trail, High Harrogate trail and the Montpellier trail.
Each one takes in a series of plaques across the town. They includes the Magnesia Well in Valley Gardens, the Tewit Well plaque at Cherry Tree Walk and the Southfield plaque, which commemorates Richard Ellis, former Mayor of Harrogate, at Station Parade.

The app was developed by Simon Dicken, son of civic society treasurer Chris Dicken, who set up the Harrogate plaques website.
A spokesperson for the civic society said:
“It is hoped that visitors and local residents alike will use this new app to help them discover, through the plaques, the people, places and stories that are part of Harrogate’s rich spa history as well as looking at parts of the town with a new perspective.”
The app can be downloaded via the Google Play store on an Android phone for free.
