Gary Verity, Chief Executive of Welcome To Yorkshire (WTY), and members of his team were in Rosedale on Wednesday evening for a WTY event to celebrate the award of ‘Yorkshire’s Favourite Pub 2012′ to the White Horse Farm Inn. As well as those involved in local tourism in the dale, many others from around the county, including past winners of the award, were invited by Welcome To Yorkshire to join the festivities in the pub.
Gary Verity ended his speech by saying that there was a very good chance that the Tour de France would be coming to Yorkshire in the near future, with huge benefits for tourist businesses in the county. How about the Tour going up Chimney Bank, now that would be worth watching!
A Bank Holiday bike trip: Paul Kirkwood rides the challenging but lovely North Yorkshire extension to the Moor to Sea cycle route.
It’s hard to know who deserves more credit: the engineers builders who built the original railway line or the national park wardens who have maintained it as a path.
Either way, the route of the old Rosedale Railway that once carried iron ore is brilliant.
