Rosedale Abbey is something of a misnomer, as, from the name you might expect it to have some connection with the Wars of the Roses, and you would expect there to (at least) have been an abbey there; neither speculation would be true. The ‘rose’ part of the name could derive from either ‘rossi’ which could have been a personal name or the word for a horse, or it might have come from ‘rhos’ meaning moor, which is probably likely. The village of Rosedale Abbey flourished in the latter half of the 19th century, because of the iron ore mining industry, but the mines closed in the 1920s and miners and their families deserted their home in the search for employment. Nature slowly reclaimed the mines and kilns and the area is now part of the North Yorks Moors National Park.
