Rosedale gets weekend buses
On Saturdays and Sundays until the end of September Moorsbus connects Rosedale with the rest of the world.
Not only can visitors from the region get to Rosedale Abbey for its walks, tea rooms, accommodation and other attractions, but Rosedale residents can get to Pickering to connect with other services.
Five services on Saturdays make it possible for locals to get to Scarborough for over a four hour visit. And four services on Sundays connect with Pickering as well as giving locals a direct morning service to Ralph Cross and Danby.
Using the bus also gives locals and visitors some great choices of ‘Buswalks’ – linear walks which save both the cost and problems of taking a car to the start of a walk, and then having to get back to the car at the end.
Fares for an all-day, travel-anywhere Moorsbus Rover ticket are £9 or £4.50 for a child. Single fares are also available and Rosedale to the Moors Centre at Danby costs £3, for example. National concessionary passes are accepted on all Moorsbuses. All the details are on www.moorsbus.org or pick up a timetable in shops and libraries.
So this summer, Rosedale is better connected than ever.
