Cambridge Street, Harrogate

Miss Turner's favourite shopping street

Harrogate in North Yorkshire is where Miss Turner, the Great Aunt of the Amazons in Swallowdale and The Picts and the Martyrs lives:

  • Nancy gave Miss Turner's address in Harrogate for the reply telegram (PM1).
  • Harrogate Postmark says Nancy of the letter from the GA saying she is coming to look after them (PM3).

It is a Spa Town, and the usual summer routine of Miss Huskisson is to take the waters at Harrogate (PM30). So in The Picts and the Martyrs the Great Aunt has to leave Beckfoot to prepare for her before Molly Turner and Captain Flint return.
