A NORTH Yorkshire architect has designed a new £10m building for one of the county's agricultural highlights.
Showground owners, the Yorkshire Agricultural Society, say they want to replace an original hall with a modern building.
Heather Parry, deputy chief executive said: “The hall was originally constructed in the 1960s and expected to last for 20 years, so it has been a good Yorkshire investment.
“Unfortunately, it is now deteriorating, and today's visitors expect higher standards and better facilities than those of 50 years ago.
“That's why we're adding a large foyer area, a café and improved toilet facilities.”
The Great Yorkshire Show has been held in Harrogate since 1952.
