A local lockdown walk for a bit of exercise during these difficult times - No lakeland adventures for me for a few weeks, but I always enjoy walking in this lovely area.
Roseberry Topping and Captain Cooks Monument are always popular with Teessiders for a nice stroll out in the countryside, it's rarely quiet and can actually be quite busy in the summer months. Roseberry Topping is a very distinctive hill in North Yorkshire, known and loved by all Teessiders. It is situated near Great Ayton and Newton under Roseberry. Its summit has a distinctive half-cone shape with a jagged cliff, which has led to many comparisons with the much higher Matterhorn in the Swiss-Italian Alps.
It's believed that due to a geological fault and ironstone mining underneath, a collapse occurred in 1912 which now gives the hill its dramatic profile.
