St Oswald's Church is a medieval church located in the village of Newton-under-Roseberry in England. The church dates back to the 12th century and was originally built as a chapel for the local lord of the manor.

In the 14th century, the chapel was expanded and transformed into a more significant church thanks to the patronage of the de Brus family, who were the lords of the manor at the time. The church was expanded further in the 15th century by the Danby family, who added a bell tower and a chancel.

The church underwent significant restoration in the 19th century, during which many of the medieval features were restored, including the font, the piscina, and the rood screen. In addition, stained glass windows were added in memory of local residents.

The church is located within the grounds of the Kings Head Hotel, which is a historic hotel that dates back to the 17th century. The hotel was originally built as a coaching inn and has since been restored and transformed into a luxury hotel.

Today, St Oswald's Church is still an active place of worship and a popular attraction for visitors to the area. The church is known for its medieval architecture and beautiful stained glass windows, making it a must-see destination for those interested in history and architecture.

The Kings Head Hotel in Newton-under-Roseberry

In the lovely little hamlet of Newton-under-Roseberry, North Yorkshire, England, is the Kings Head Hotel where you can get good food, especially after a walk in the splendid surrounding countryside, including the ascent of Roseberry Topping (1051 ft, 329 m high). A gentler stroll across the village green and down a quiet lane takes you to some older houses and the tranquil medieval Church of St Oswald. The Kings Head Hotel in Newton-under-Roseberry, Cleveland, was built in 1796 for the local landowner as his manor house. Its role is now reversed! as it now serves the locals (and visitors) with good food and beer after a good walk in the Cleveland Hills, especially up Roseberry Topping!

The Pinchinthorpe railway track walk and Guisborough Forest and Branch Walkway Cafe are situated near the town of Guisborough, North Yorkshire, England. The area was once home to a network of railway lines that connected the town with the rest of the region.

The Pinchinthorpe railway line was constructed in the late 19th century by the North Eastern Railway Company. The line connected the ironstone mines in the surrounding areas with the mainline station at Guisborough. The line was predominantly used for the transportation of iron ore, and it played a vital role in the development of the iron and steel industry in the area.

The decline of the iron and steel industry in the mid-20th century led to the closure of the Pinchinthorpe railway line. The tracks were removed, and the line was left abandoned for several years.

In the late 1980s, the local authorities decided to convert the disused railway line into a footpath and cycleway. The line was restored and opened to the public in 1991, and it has since become a popular destination for leisurely walks and bike rides.

In 2002, the Guisborough Forest and Branch Walkway Cafe was opened to provide refreshments and facilities for visitors to the area. The cafe is situated at the end of the walkway and offers a range of hot and cold drinks, snacks, and light meals.

Today, the Pinchinthorpe railway track walk and Guisborough Forest and Branch Walkway Cafe remain popular attractions for locals and tourists alike, providing a glimpse into the history and heritage of the area.
