Bloworth Crossing, Coast to Coast
The railway ran from Battersby to Rosedale, i.e. from north to south across the North Yorks Moors for a distance of 11 miles. Its specific purpose was to carry iron ore from the Rosedale valley. The railway line has now been covered in gravel and forms part of the Cleveland Way and the Coast to Coast path. At Bloworth junction the railway lines can still be seen close to the surface of the path. The Coast to Coast path is elevated on levees in places where the moorland bag is particularly dense.
