The Rosedale History Society ran the second of this year’s history walks on Sunday 19 May, starting at the White Horse Farm Inn (Yorkshire’s Favourite Pub 2012) car park at 2.00pm. Ten happy history buffs joined Linda and Paddy Chambers for the walk which went to the ironstone mines at Hollins, then up the ridge to Ana Cross and then to Bank Top to look at the historic railway and mining remains there, as well as evidence of Rosedale’s role in the Cold War in the form of the Royal Observer Corps monitoring post.
The next RHS walk will be on Sunday 23 June starting from Rosedale Abbey village green, going along Northdale Beck and then up into Northdale. It will last around three hours and finish back in the village. All walkers are encouraged to have appropriate wet weather clothing and sturdy hiking footwear.
All are welcome and the walk is free, but contributions to the RHS are always welcome. Further details are available at http://rosedale.ryedaleconnect.org or ‘phone on 01751 417071.
