Designing for Tomorrow
Renaissance Knaresborough (RK) is a not-for-profit organisation, which is open to local residents, community groups, social enterprises and institutions.
Its aim is to provide the necessary framework, structure and organisation to reinforce the role of Knaresborough as a service centre for residents, businesses and for the surrounding rural communities.
I fell in love with Knaresborough
Jukka Karen - Helsinki
‘I remember vividly walking down that bank after we'd just gotten off the train, our first steps in Knaresborough. Our amazement and awe grew with every step, and I remember going "phwoarrr, look at this place!!" in my head over and over again. And then we turned left and walked to our cottage, by the Nidd, past the cafés and houses...I could not believe my eyes. I'd ogled pics of it on the Internet God knows how many times, but I STILL could not believe my eyes.
Fell in love with Knaresborough during that first walk’
