Last year Rosedale Abbey, the dale’s main village, became the first in the North York Moors National Park to earn Walkers are Welcome status – a community-led scheme which aims to highlight areas which have demonstrated real commitment to making visits from walkers as enjoyable as possible.

To gain the status the village had to take measures to maintain existing walks in good condition, and make sure facilities were available to pedestrian visitors.

Ian Thompson of Rosedale’s Walkers are Welcome committee said:

'We’re delighted to announce the first Rosedale Walking Festival. Rosedale is one of the most beautiful areas in the UK, and this is one way to share it with our visitors.'

The Festival takes place 14 - 15 September. Visitors will be able to choose from a variety of organised trips, including a wildlife-themed walk, a meander round the local teashops, a history walk and the big route of the weekend - the Rosedale Circular.

Tickets should be booked in advance. For more info see the festival website.
