Roseberry Topping, near Great Ayton

DavidB's picture

Roseberry Topping is a very distinctive hill with its half-cone shape summit and jagged cliff and stands at 320metres (1,050ft).Its unique conical shape is the result of the hard sandstone cap protecting the underlying shales and clays from erosion by the rain, wind and ice.The views are fantastic and on a clear day you can see as far as the Pennines.

Best to go for October/November sunsets, when this side of the Topping should catch the sun.

Roseberry Topping, can be very busy with visitors so if you are after the place to yourself, then make an early start.

The site at Captain Cook’s Monument also provides panoramic views along the curve of the Cleveland Hills, down into Great Ayton, across to Roseberry topping and back deep into the North Yorkshire Moors.

There are some very steep inclines and declines, so sturdy footwear would be appropriate.
