Rosedale Mines and Railways

by R. H. Hayes and J. G. Rutter. Updated and expanded edition published by Scarborough Archaeological & Historical Society, 2021. Octavo, 159 pages, illustrated. Paperback. £8 + £2.50 p&p.

Originally a 32 page booklet published in 1974, it has been considerably updated “with extensively researched additional archive material, enhanced images, and improved mapping…….many people have considered an updating of the original booklet an important project, especially considering information which has been discovered over the intervening years and particularly during the extensive work undertaken by the Land of Iron project (2016-2021).

This book gives us an opportunity to better understand Rosedale’s magnificent industrial archaeological sites, for so long undiscovered by the wider community, and the important role our remote dale had to play in Victorian and Edwardian ironstone mining and railway history.”
