Paul Hayward, a local motor sport historian, gave a most interesting talk last night on the history of the once nationally famous hill climbs held on Chimney Bank in the the 1920s.

The event, which was sponsored by the Rosedale History Society and held in the the History Room of the White Horse Farm Inn by kind permission of Christine and Jim, was attended by over 30 people, both local and visitors to the dale, with £62 being raised in donations to the Next Steps mental health charity.

The Rosedale History Society holds more information on the hill climbs. Come and see it at the next Tea and Chat meeting of the Society which will be at the Updale Reading Room on Sunday 5 May from 2 to 4 pm.
