The iconic site of the first Harry Ramsden's restaurant is re-opening tomorrow, but Calendar is going behind the scenes today.

It closed earlier this year, but the Wetherby Whaler group has since taken it over. A full refurbishment costing £500,000 has been carried out and the new fish and chip restaurant will still have a lot of the original features.

Installing a fryer: How they did it

A new fryer has been installed at the Wetherby Whaler restaurant in Guiseley. It used to be the home of Harry Ramsden's. A window had to be removed to get 7.3 metre long fryer inside - and this is how they did it.
