Rosedale, North Riding of Yorkshire

Historical Description

Rosedale, a village and a vale in the N.R. Yorkshire. The village stands in the vale, at the mutual boundary of the townships of Rosedale Eastside and Rosedale Westside, 10 miles NNW of Pickering railway station. It adjoins, on the W, some remains of a Benedictine priory founded in the time of Richard I., and has a post, money order, and telegraph office, of the name of Rosedale Abbey, under Pickering. The vale was formerly very solitary, but since the extensive ironworks were opened on the hills above, the village has been filled with life. The ore is conveyed by railway along the ridge of the moors to Ingleby Greenhow, where it joins the North Yorkshire and Cleveland railway.
