Welcome to the Rosedale blog. This is where we share news and information about events in Rosedale and the wider community throughout the year. You’ll also find news about the village timetable, our micro enterprises, school events, clubs, and lively socials.
Event now booked for 23rd June 2013.
Entries will be available through British Cycling.
The Moor Tour was a new Cyclo Sportive event in 2012 taking place in the North Yorkshire Moors organised by MJS Outdoors.
With a choice of two challenging routes of either 100 miles or 100km (60 miles), starting and finishing just outside Stokesley on the North edge of the moors.
A gruelling test of rider stamina through beautiful countryside and rugged moorland, the routes take in a number of the most challenging climbs in the moors and will reward you with some great downhill sections.
Both routes come through Rosedale and up Chimney bank the steepest public road in England !

A bit of congestion on Chimney Bank yesterday caused by folks sledging with their cars !
Hasten to add, the road into Rosedale from Cropton is well gritted and maintained by Highways throughout this icy weather. The village and facilities are fully accessible using this route.

Stark, bleak, lonely moors with heather running to the horizon and a big sky. Classic North York Moors. We called in at the Blacksmiths in Lastingham when halfway round for a brief stop. I felt deeply ashamed not to pay due respect to the marvellous real ales on offer, but I maintained an iron resolve and returned to the moor still hungry and thirsty.
But while the Moors are fairly barren places and not over sustaining, they always raise my spirits and give me a great sense of well-being. Under a darkening sky I watched the gamekeepers’ fires on a distant moor as I sat, with Monty at my side, on the lonely old base of the ancient Ana Cross, one of dozens of such structures that give the area such character. All so calm and very peaceful. I love it here. It may be true that man shall not live by bread alone, but as I scanned the distant horizons of this beautiful country in which I am so lucky to live, I couldn’t help wondering, “I wonder what is for dinner tonight”?

What is the Trust:- We are local people with a genuine interest in local geology and landscape.
The Trust receives no government funding, we rely on raising our own money, mainly through project grants.
Most of our members are active volunteers who contribute their time and expertise to help with our many projects.
The Geology Trust seeks to protect valuable Local Earth Heritage and where possible share it with a wider public for education and recreation.
The Trust operates with an independent and pragmatic approach. The sites we wish to protect and use are on other peoples land and often have additional value for biology, archaeology, landscape and history, all these interests are taken into account.
The Fish & Chip Van will be arriving in Rosedale a little earlier on Friday nights from now on.
