The annual show (every August) is run by the Agricultural, Horticultural and Industrial Society. This year will include Cattle, Goats, Heavy Horses, Ponies, jumping, local produce, Rabbits, Vintage Tractors & Scarecrows and much more. More details to follow soon on the Rosedale Show’s website.
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.
The festival was blessed by the weather gods and so the number of walkers was slightly up on last year, in spite of there being fewer walks in the programme. Over 80 walkers took part, aged from six to well over sixty, with most of them from outside the dale. Some images from the weekend:

Heartfelt thanks to all who organised this excellent weekend and to the walk leaders for making such a success of it.
As part of the This Exploited Land of Iron project, all the major relics, artifacts and buildings are being recorded in three dimensions so that accurate models and computer images can be produced. This involves taking multiple photographs of all aspects of the target and then creating the final 3D image using powerful software programmes.
On your way home on Wednesday evening, 14 June, you may have seen some activity at the kilns at Bank Top where members of the TELI team were recording the detail of the kilns with cameras and a drone.

Oops, a false start! Although the episode of Tony Robinson’s Coast to Coast programme which aired on Channel 5 at 8.00pm on Good Friday was supposed to cover the North York Moors, not much was shown until near the end. However, next week’s programme on Friday 21 April at 8.00pm on Channel 5 will show much more of the NYMs and will include a segment on Rosedale or so we understand. Set your recorders on if you can’t watch at the time, or catch-up later. Should be interesting and a good run-in for the Land of Iron History Days at the Updale Reading Room on 22 and 23 April from 11 to 4.30 pm each day.
Not much progress to report as the recent wet weather has prevented work on the site. Some restoration of the approaches to the kilns area is needed and the immediate area of the workings needs tidying up.
All the main work is now completed and the portakabins and plant have been removed from the area as of today. All that remains is to restore the approaches to the work site by the kilns and top dress the new pathway. The next phase will be to clear the culverts at Reeking Gill to prevent further erosion there.
