A public consultation on the proposed conservation measures on Rosedale’s ironstone roasting kilns was held last night, 12 December, in the Coach House Inn. The session was very well attended by 28 local people and there was lively discussion on several topics after stimulating presentations by representatives from the project office and the archaeological and engineering agencies involved with the proposed works.
Tom Mutton, the TELI project manager outlines progress on the project.
The excellent Super Mobile Library visits Rosedale on Mondays throughout the year between 5 and 7pm, located by Abbey Stores and provides the opportunity for us to choose from a wide and varied selection of books as well as providing access to fast (up to 20 Mbs) broad band, so you or the kids can browse, download or upload at about ten times the speeds currently available here. The dates for the rest of the year are (all Mondays): 31 July, no visits in August, then 11 and 25 September, 9 and 23 October, 6 and 20 November and finally 4 and 18 December.

Most people living in the dale will have seen that a film production company has been at work in the village for the last few days, but visitors and others might like to know what is happening. The programme being made is a six part sitcom for ITV starring the comedian Jack Dee, with a working title ‘Bad Move’ . The scenario involves a couple, Steve and Nicky (Jack Dee and Kerry Godliman) moving ‘oop North’ to take over a run-down village store and the amusing encounters they have with locals and so on. The series is due to air sometime in the Autumn, but other than that little else is know at this stage. Some scenes from the recent activity:
Anyone recognise Abbey Stores?
Arrival of the most important vehicle, the dining bus.
Setting up for filming
Base camp on the Milburn Field
Jack Dee wondering what’s happening next!
It’s Raining In Rosedale
The company is moving on to other parts of the county on Friday including a session in Harrogate, before moving back to London to complete filming and editing. It has been a fascinating process to watch and we wish them well for the rest of the their time in Yorkshire.
Finally, many thanks to David Seaton, the location manager and his assistant Eugene for their help in allowing access to locations.
Tony Robinson, of Blackadder and Time Team fame, and a film crew were in Rosedale on Monday 5 September, shooting for a series on walks across the UK to be shown later this year on Channel 5. Linda Chambers from the Rosedale History Society was asked to advise Tony of the history of ironstone mining in the dale.
