(north side, off)
6/202 Gallon steps, with 2 lamp
posts and walls, linking
Waterside and Kirkgate.
Steps, flanking walls and lamp posts. Brick, gritstone, cobbles and cast
iron. Early C19. Steps: 7 flights, approximately 2 metres wide. Gritstone
slabs over stone and brick core. Some C20 restoration. Cobble platforms
between flights. Walls: coursed gritstone with pointed coping,
approximately 1 metre high on outside. Inner wall is part rubble and part
coursed gritstone. Lampposts: fluted columns, lanterns restored c1980. The
steps appear to have been named after Richard Gallon, gent, who kept the
Nidd pavilion in 1822. They are also recorded as Factory Steps, and the
1851 Ordnance Survey map shows a linen factory built against the cliff face
about halfway along their line. The lampposts were probably first erected
when the town was lit by gas in 1824. W A Atkinson, Knaresborough and its
Manor Houses, 1924, p 26. Ordnance Survey, Map of Knaresborough, 5 feet to
