Rowntree once again

No 17 West Street is now Rowntree Lodge

As you can see from the sign today we have become Rowntree Lodge.

On 14th November 1876 Messrs J S Rowntree and J Cadbury took out a joint mortgage to purchase No 17 West Street as a shared holiday house in Scarborough.

As Joseph Rowntree is widely regarded as the father of marketing, it seemed only right to rename the hotel after its original owner.
