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.
Now that the fuss had died down, some pictures from the great day:
Three happy visitors up at Bell End Farm
The peleton or bunch whirling passed Bell End Farm
The Rosedale Swing Band in fine form
Even noisier – the children’s brass band!
The pop-up tea and cake stall that raised £685 for the church and school.
And finally, thanks to all those many who put up bunting, designed wonderful artifacts to decorate the approaches to and the village itself and generally helped make 1 May a special day for all in the dale.
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!
Welcome to the Tour de Yorkshire
The brand new Golden Tour de Yorkshire Trophy
Ena Dent from Rosedale Parish Council holding the new trophy with Emma Towning from North Yorkshire County Council and Janet Frank form Ryedale District Council, at the Coach House Inn where the trophy is on display until midday Friday 17 April.
Hurrah for Butcher’s Row for their great display of bunting ahead of the festivities on 1 May! Now for the rest of the village?
First out of the blocks with their race themed bunting
There they go over to the moors riding the first stage of the Tour de Yorkshire photo by Ena Dent of Craven Farm. Gary Verity and a team of top cycling journos passed though the village today, testing the route and enjoying the new road surfaces.
Although we had no riders in the Tour de France, Rosedale was represented by Maggie Barraclough, Mike Hutton and Shirley Tyrell who added to the sparkle and success of the Le Grand Depart by acting as Tour Makers over both Yorkshire stages.

Did anyone spot them? Hard to miss in all that lovely bright kit!
