Rosedale Head, Rosedale, Coast to Coast

The walk across Rosedale Head from the road at Blakey Ridge to the White Cross on the Rosedale Road is full of interesting historical places of interest. It is only a mile long and cuts across the drier area of heath making up the head of Rosedale and the River Seven near to where it springs. The Coast to Coast path follows this route.

It is called Rosedale Head because this area of high ground is the head of the wonderful North Yorks valley of Rosedale, more or less in the centre of the North Yorks Moors.

Of the many interesting features are the disused iron workings that abound the area, more so lower down the valley and on the Blakey Ridge. In 1854 there was a huge rush to mine iron here because of the quality of iron ore which was said to be at least 67% pure iron. The iron works have long ago been abandoned.

Boundary Stones and Crosses are amongst the other interesting features abounding on or near Rosedale Head.
