Chimney Bank has been closed until further notice because of a serious crash on the hill on Friday morning 8 December. The BATA feed lorry skidded on frozen snow and crashed just above the first hairpin on the hill, shedding its load of cattle feed.

Fortunately the driver only suffered a broken ankle and was taken off to Scarborough Hospital.
In view of the conditions on the Bank and the forecasted very bad weather, the recovery crews told the police and Highways on site that it would be unsafe to attempt a recovery until the weather improves. So the Bank is closed until further notice – watch this space and our social media for further reports.

In spite of a couple of sharp showers in mid-afternoon, the Rosedale Show 2016 passed off well. Numbers were thought to be down on last year. mainly because of the adverse weather forecasts, but those who did come to show enjoyed the day. Some photos:

The updated attendance figures will be published here shortly. In the meantime the Show Committee would like to thank all who helped set up the showground and who acted as gate stewards, traffic controllers and the like and who helped make the day another success for Rosedale.

As part of the forthcoming Morrison’s Christmas advertising campaign due to be aired from 4 November, a film crew recently ‘decorated’ parts of Updale with artificial snow. The picture shows a gateway near Stables Farm.

According to David his flock is in good condition after the mild, albeit wet winter. Fingers crossed for a good lambing season to come.
