Welcome to the Rosedale blog. This is where we share news and information about events in Rosedale and the wider community throughout the year. You’ll also find news about the village timetable, our micro enterprises, school events, clubs, and lively socials.
A number of events around the dale are taking place to celebrate HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Most of the events are in aid of the Save Rosedale Abbey Church Appeal and you can contribute directly during the week at the events or by BACS payment to Save Rosedale Abbey Church, account no 35397892, sort code 05-05-70 at Virgin Money.
Some images from the celebrations in the dale are below:
The excellent concert on 9 June in the church was a fitting finale to a very successful Platinum Jubilee week in Rosedale. Congratulations and thanks to all who organised the many events and to all the volunteers who helped run them so well. Many visitors commented on on the bright and friendly atmosphere in the village throughout the period and Rosedale can be proud of its tribute to HM The Queen and its efforts in raising much needed funds for the church’s restoration. The Church Treasurer is now drawing breath and will publish the financial results shortly. Remember, you can continue giving at any time to this vital effort, either in the boxes in the church itself or by BACS to Save Rosedale Abbey Church at Virgin Money account number 35397892, sort code 05-05-70
Afternote: the final amount for the church appeal raised after costs is a magnificent £4,530! Again, well done to all involved.
As part of the appeal to raise funds to save St Mary and St Lawrence Church in Rosedale Abbey, a 2018 calendar has been produced which will be on sale at Rosedale Show on 19 August in the Rosedale History Society tent on Row F and also in the Church Tea Tent by the entrance to the main ring, for £10 a copy with envelope.
A high quality, full colour calendar showing scenes of Rosedale throughout the year.
The calendar is a lovely reminder of Rosedale and will make an ideal Christmas present, so please make an effort to buy at least one to help us raise the funds for the urgent repairs needed to the church.
The calendar will also be on sale at the church repair appeal coffee morning at the Coach House Inn on Saturday 2 September between 10.00 and 12.00 am – please make a note of the time and date for your diaries.
The annoying sea fret over the last few days has thankfully disappeared! Taken at Ebenezer Cottage in Northdale, once the home of a retired ironstone miner called Jack Spencely, and published in The Yorkshire Post of 6 June 2016.
Artists in Rosedale, making the best of the fine weather.
A group of fourteen artists from Grimsby and Cleethorpes were in Rosedale Abbey on Sunday 12 July, under the tutelage of Leslie Treacher of Leslie Treacher Painting Holidays, based at the Mustard Seed Gallery in Cleethorpes (01472 200338)
Fortunately for the water colourists in the group the weather was fine if a little blowy!
Well, it’s up! The message is revealed as ‘North York Moors’ and can be seen on the hillside at Greenbank off the Knott Road, although a better view can seen from Daleside Road (on the way to School Row and Hill Cottages). Or better still with a private helicopter!

Work by Yorkshire glassmakers Gillies Jones will be seen in a showcase celebrating the work of the UK’s leading craftmakers.
Rosedale glassmakers, Stephen Gillies and Kate Jones, are appearing in the exhibition at London’s Royal Academy of Arts, as alumni of the Crafted mentoring programme run by Walpole, a not-for-profit organisation that aims to further the interests of the British luxury industry. They are showing five large pieces of glass, each decorated with a landscape inspired by their surroundings in the North York Moors National Park.
The showcase, which runs from Thursday to Saturday, is free of charge to visit and open to all.
Ms Jones said: “We’re delighted to be selected as part of this prestigious showcase of contemporary craft, showing our work alongside 30 makers across the disciplines in a unique cultural organisation: a place where art is made, exhibited and debated.”
The Crafted programme was founded four years ago to
protect and promote traditional skills that are often forgotten
and overlooked in an era of digital design and mass production.
