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 Rosedale Walking Festival 2016, the Rosedale History Society conducted a walk from Rosedale Abbey to Medd’s Farm, Sheriff’s Pit, Bank Top and back, covering the social and industrial history of the dale from the start of the ironstone ‘Klondike’ in the Victorian era to the present day.

Thanks to Sue and Kevin Atkinson for allowing us to view the pit pony stables at Poplar Farm.
Our annual Walking Festival is 25 & 26 June. Six walks are online, and there will be more to come including a new Nordic Walking experience.
Advance booking of the walks is advisable as many of the walks are very popular, did we mention the Cake Walk…. and the Pilgrims way….
