Rosedale History Walk 12 August 2012

At the village pond at the start of the walk.

The Rosedale History Society ran another very successful walk on Sunday, with 12 walkers joining the RHS for a walk in to Northdale looking at the social and mining history as well as some lost farms.

George Watson of Northdale Farm talking about the 'Bug and Flea Hotel', as the old doss house for farm workers was called.

The next walk will be on 12 September 2012 starting at the village green at 10.30am, then going up the river line to Thorgill, crossing over along Battling Hills Lane to Dalehead (optional lunch stop at Farmhouse Fodder Tea Garden) and then up onto the track bed, returning to Rosedale Abbey via East Mines. Total distance will be around 6 miles and the walk should end back in Rosedale Abbey about 3.30pm. All walkers must wear robust footwear and wear/carry weather proof clothing as weather conditions can change dramatically in the dale in the Autumn.

Walks are free apart from any refreshments, but donations to help the work of the Rosedale History Society would be gratefully received. There is no need to book places, but further details can be found by checking this web site for updates or calling 01751 417071
