History Walks 2012

ROSEDALE HISTORY SOCIETY

HISTORY WALKS 2012

We start our programme of history walks NEXT SUNDAY, 15 APRIL with a walk from The White Horse on Chimney Bank (car park) starting at 2.00 p.m. lasting approximately 2 hours. We will take in the track towards Hollins and then up the dale side onto the moor to Ana Cross. We will then walk to Bank Top and across the kilns and railway terminus site and down onto the Thorgill road or descend Chimney Bank, depending on prevailing weather conditions! This walk takes in some important industrial sites but there will be plenty of social history too. You will be able to see archive photographs of the various locations and perhaps take some good photographs yourselves, with some excellent views across the valley and Spaunton Moor on offer.

Please contact us by ‘phone for further details and/or go to the history link on www.rosedaleabbey.com
