This was a slow and difficult journey on poor roads, which often became gummed up with mud in wet weather. In a railway line opened to connect the Rosedale mines and kilns with the ironworks on the banks of the River Tees.

Information, photographs and plans for Rosedale Iron Railway on the mine exploration web site A standard gauge light railway was planned to cover the eight miles from near Rosedale Abbey to a junction with the NER's branch that ran east from Helmsley to Pickering and west by way of Gilling and Coxwold to Malton on the main York-Scarborough line.

Rosedale East Mines calcining kilns and iron mines, m east and m north east of Stables Farm is a Scheduled Monument in Rosedale East Side, North Yorkshire, England.

The old railway track above Rosedale near where few stones and shafts remain from the old ironstone mines. There are several old mine shafts close to the paths (ex old ironstone railway track) and look down into them - with great care! This one is from Sheriff's Pit (see more pictures below).

TE Rounthwaite investigated the railways and mines of the Cleveland and Rosedale districts in the late 's and early 's. His work is a detailed and painstaking record of the mines and their associated railway systems, just before the industry finished in So valuable was the ironstone of Rosedale that nearly twenty miles of standard gauge railway were built to transport this mineral wealth over the highest part of the North York Moors /5(4).

The three partners formed The Rosedale Mining Company. At first the ore was taken by road to Pickering and then by rail via Malton and Pilmoor to various ironworks including the Derwent Works at Consett. In The North Yorkshire and Cleveland Railway extended its line from Stokesley to Kildale with stations at Ingleby, Battersby and Kildale.

The NYMNP, have produced an information leaflet about the loop of the former railway in Rosedale which has been available locally and which is detailed below. History From to this railway carried iron ore from mines in Rosedale over the high moorland to the north-west and down to join the main rail network at Battersby Junction.

Ken Hoole in his book Railways of Cleveland and Hayes and Rutter in their book Rosedale Mines and Railway both state the line was unsignalled. Evidence has since been obtained to show that this was not the Size: 1MB. Another fine and recommended source of reference is the booklet 'Rosedale Mines and Railway' by RH Hayes & JG Rutter published by Scarborough Archaeological and Historical Society and cheaply available in most good bookshops in this area - the booklet contains details of the history of the industry as well as many old photographs and diagrams of the track routes.

A branch line was constructed by the North Eastern Railway which was opened to its terminus at Low Bearing in August By about this time the Rosedale and Ferryhill Iron Company had opened the East Mines, working a seam of ironstone around 4m thick.

The iron mining and railway community in Rosedale came into being in the s. It flourished for two or three generations, but by it had come to an end.

Some of the miners and railway staff may have stayed in Rosedale, but most of them moved on in search of a livelihood elsewhere. The mines are closed but plenty of industrial archaeology remains with information boards.

A beneficial legacy as far as walkers are concerned is that the mining industry resulted in what is now a disused railway route circling the entire valley above Rosedale Abbey. The Rosedale Railway line made mining ironstone at this location both accessible and financially feasible. Today you can still see the line of the railway hugging the hillsides of the dale, which can be traced with the naked eye for up to 16 kms at many points.

For 70 years, the peace and tranquillity of Rosedale was shattered by a booming ironstone industry. It's hard to believe today but in the 19th century the area was part of industrial Yorkshire, with mines, kilns and even a moorland railway. In fact, when the mines opened, the population of the dale shot up from people to 2, in a mere This web page requires a JavaScript enabled browser.

Relics of the past On this route you'll pass lots of evidence of the old ironstone industry Location: Chimney Bank Car Park, Rosedale Abbey, Pickering, North Yorkshire. At Rosedale, the railway branches into two levels – the upper line led to the mines above the kilns while the lower one (the one you walk on) served the kilns themselves.

Once the iron ore had been processed, it was taken out of the valley by rail and on to County Durham and, later, Middlesbrough (with coal from County Durham coming the other.

An easy-access there and back walk, close to Rosedale Abbey in the centre of the North York Moors. The walking route follows the line of a dismantled railway which once transported coal and iron ore, playing a key role in industrial Yorkshire. Today, the remaining track bed offers unrivaled access into the centre of the moors, with outstanding valley views for the entire length.
