The Rosedale History Weekend held at the Updale Reading Room was very well attended, helped by the excellent weather with visitors, many from out of the dale, enjoying a wide display of industrial, social and natural history material on show. The renowned Kildale industrial historian, Malcolm Bisby gave a fascinating talk on Saturday on the development of the Rosedale branch on the North Eastern Railway and over thirty people (and three dogs) took part in the walks ups to East Mines over the two days
