Rosedale’s Weather’s Turned

November 30, 2017

Brrrrrrr, suddenly it’s winter in the Moors. The snow ploughs are out, the abundant red berries have been striped from the Holly trees, and all is quiet and very cold. Love winter……

Planning a visit to Gillies Jones Studio?

December 1, 2013

It’s that time of year, when the weather turns and we are merrily blowing glass through the week. Though we are officially closed, we continue to welcome visitors during this time (it’s best time of the year to be glass makers) just drop us an email studio@gilliesjonesglass.co.uk or give us a call in advance of your arrival 01751 417550, as just sometimes, the weather in Rosedale can be a tad inclement and best to call to ensure we are accessible. Any queries, don’t hesitate.

River Freezing Over !

Not something I’ve seen much of before in Rosedale. The bank is thick with icicles in places and the river is beginning to freeze over.

Wax Wings Feeding

November 6, 2012

There was a hard frost first thing this morning, quite beautiful. The birds are now making the most of the last of the Howgate Wonders left on the tree… not that there were many apples at all this year. Opened the studio blinds this morning to see the tree chock full of the little fellas with their heads inside the apples. Just been told they are Wax Wings !
