Highgrove's peaceful setting was the site of a mill from as eary as the 11th century, finally becoming a livestock farm in the 50's. This was owned by Richard Harrison, who together with his wife Hazel turned it into the happy home known to their son Christopher.

Christopher Harrison recognised the potential for Highgrove, creating the successful Harraby Green Business Park where businesses and residential homes blend to create a unique 'village' setting.
