The colour of autumn. The leaves of the Field Maple, Sycamore and Beech are all turning quickly now. We are one sharp frost away from bare branches.

Rosedale's Waterfall

The Weather

Well.. we British love to talk about the weather and it has been a tad wet as of late.

Rosedale's waterfall reappeared on the West side of the dale. Not seen this since the early 2000's

Rosedales Sycamore

Rosedales Sycamore

There is a magnificent tree on the village green.

Planted in 1911 is has grown into a magnificent specimen.

We look at these trees in a whole new way, following the cutting down of Sycamore Gap.

The power of a Sycamore to regrow after such a brutal act is evident in Rosedale.

We went to the green last week and took a good look at the trunk.

It seems the Rosedale tree once suffered the same fate as Sycamore Gap, but has regrown into a crown of major branches without a central trunk, to become a truly magnificent presence in the village centre.


Sycamore Bowl

Sycamore Bowl

We launched our new design yesterday, the day when the significant tree - Sycamore Gap tree was inexplicably cut down.

Strange times. This bowl is a celebration of the beauty and wonder of the humble Sycamore.....

There is a magnificent sycamore in the middle of the village green in Rosedale Abbey, planted in 1911 on the coronation of George V.

The double samara, or keys, of the sycamore form a symmetrical wing like cluster and hang like golden jewels from her autumnal branches. Thousands are formed every year and disperse by spinning away from the parent and on to the ground, ready to become new trees.

The sycamore was introduced to the UK either by the Romans, or from central and Southern Europe in the 15th Century and, while not universally loved as they create dense stands in the shade of the parent tree, they are now accepted as native and feature in our literature and art.

Shakespeare wrote in Love’s Labour’s Lost in 1598: 'Under the coole shade of a Siccamore/ I thought to close mine eyes some halfe an houre'.

'The tree is indeed beautiful at all times of year and even the black blotches of rhytisma fungus on falling leaves have a weird charm. A tree of good luck, bad luck and creativity, it is now a part of us. As the little seed drones twizzle through the grey winter air, their keys are tuning the locks of the future.' Dr Paul Evans.



Rosedale Dale Head

Rosedale Dale Head

I enjoyed a walk with my camera, in this stunning part of the world.

Ahhh, ya know.... I love the North York Moors.

View over Rosedale from the dale head.

Vast skies, deep dales, rolling moors and dramatic light falling on a stunning landscape, it never gets old.
