Haworth’s Three Graces Lodge of Freemasons is looking to provide a grandstand stay for some of the many visitors expected for the arrival of the Tour de France on July 6.

The Lodge’s headquarters is in a prime position in Mill Hey, and the riders and their associated caravan will go straight past its front door.

The Lodge is offering its car park as a temporary motorhome base for Tour fans following the race round its Yorkshire course.

The 107-year old building sits at the junction of Mill Hey and Ebor Lane, and its car park will be able to offer hospitality to up to eight motorhomes.

Lodge secretary, John Sharman, said: “It’s a win-win situation for everybody.

“The motorhome owners will have access to a parking spot close to the Tour de France’s course, and they will have a grand view of the riders coming down from Cross Roads.

“Added to which they will be staying in one of York-shire’s most famous villages. And, at same time, the Lodge will be able to give its funds a much-needed boost.

“This is a once-in-a-life-time opportunity, and we’re delighted to be able to share our facilities with visitors looking for a convenient place to stay for Haworth’s big day out in the sporting spotlight.”
