The final walk of the Rosedale History Society’s 2012 season of guided walks took place today. The longest of the year, the group of nine went from the village through to Thorgill, then across country to Battling Hills Lane and broke for a delicious lunch at Maggie Barraclough’s Dalehead Farm Tea Garden.
After lunch the group went up to the East Mines, looked at some fossils and then went by Hill Houses and over some old trods and pannier ways down to the Duker Bridge and then back to Rosedale Abbey.
The RHS would like to thanks all those who came on the series of walks for supporting the Society and we look forward to running another programme of stimulating and informative walks and events in 2013.
Meanwhile, on Friday 28 September from 7.00pm to 9.00pm and on Saturday 29 September from 10.30 am to 5.00pm, the Society and the Rosedale Arts Group will be having an open house and displays of archive photographs, Diamond Jubilee project material and artwork in the Updale Reading Room. Refreshments and a raffle will be available – all are welcome and hope to see you there.
