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.

History Society Gatecrasher Shock!

John Dent, our village caretaker, revealed an unexpected side of his character when he appeared at today’s meeting of the History Society’s tea and chat afternoon dressed as a tart!

John Dent in fancy dress – or perhaps not? Janet and Pat Dring seem tickled!

In fact, John, a History Society regular, was off to a charity sale of actual tarts at the White Horse Farm Inn in aid of blinded service personnel, a worthy cause and worth the odd ribald remark. Update: the tart auction made £350, an excellent result and thanks again to Christine and Jim at the White Horse.

The next tea and chat meeting of the Rosedale History Society will be on Sunday 4 August at the Updale Reading Room between 2pm and 4pm – all are most welcome. And the tarts will be delicious!

Walkers are Welcome in Rosedale !

One of North Yorkshire’s most historic and beautiful villages, Rosedale Abbey, is celebrating after becoming the first village in the North York Moors National Park to gain Walkers are Welcome status.

It’s the latest of over 80 towns and villages nationwide to join the innovative community-led scheme, which aims to highlight areas which have demonstrated real commitment to making visits from walkers as enjoyable as possible.

Rosedale Abbey, located roughly midway between Pickering and Castleton, is famous for its spectacular views and wild walks.

To gain the status, village representatives had to undertake a challenging application process to prove their commitment, including measures taken to maintain existing walks in good condition, and facilities available to visitors.

The village is aiming to promote the scheme with a special stand at the annual Rosedale Show in August, which regularly attracts over 6,000 visitors, and a walking festival later in the year.

Catriona McLees, the North York Moors National Park Authority’s Head of Promotion and Tourism, said: “Visitor surveys show that walking is by far the most popular activity in the North York Moors, be it a short stroll or a longer hike up hill and down dale. Rosedale has plenty to offer all abilities and I’m sure this award will encourage many more to discover the wonderful walks that start from the village.”
