Black & White imageUndated. Aerial view of Grange Park showing the layout of the stables. The stables and 201 acre park were sold at auction in November 1984 by the executors of Donald F. Oates. The auction was held at Wetherby Town Hall and the purchaser was the chairman of the Agricultural Society, David Hudson. Work began on the renovation of the training stables including 40 boxes. They were leased to Richard Whittaker of Scarcroft, a well known racehorse trainer, in 1985. The Wetherby Grange Stables are situated on the banks of the River Wharfe not far from the new bridge constructed in 1985, part of the Wetherby By-Pass.
