The Ravenstonedale website was set up as a Millennium project and has blossomed over the past ten years thanks to all the contributors and particularly to the enthusiasm of the webmaster.
Now the group is taking a further step towards co-ordinating and collating the rich history of Ravenstonedale’s evolution by forming a Parish History Group. This has been made possible due to the acquisition by Ravenstonedale Parish Council of the former High Chapel which held its final service just over four years ago after more than three hundred years. The building will now continue to serve the community as a Community and Heritage Centre.
The History Group is in its embryonic stage and would like to hear from anyone wishing to join, share information or make enquiries about the past. In particular they would like to hear from those of you who are tracing ancestors and whether your enquiries have been answered. You can make email contact at: firstname.lastname@example.org
