Roseberry Topping


2_fromgate.jpg

Roseberry Topping is a hill near Great Ayton in North Yorkshire, just over 1,000ft high. Its characteristic shape was formed by a collapse in 1912, probably due to ironstone and alum mining. The approach from the steep side, from the village of Newton-under-Roseberry is hard work. However, the walk is much easier from the parking area at the end of the road from Great Ayton Railway Station. Captain Cook's Monument can be easily accessed from the same starting point. The views are excellent. The Cleveland Way has an option to include it.

Crowsnest.jpg
Crows Nests353 viewsThe locals call them crows, the purists say they are rooks. There are always many nests in the woods at Bracey Bridge. Years ago, the young ones would be shot for crow pie, but it seems to have fallen in disuse.
