Roseberry Topping

Roseberry Topping Roseberry Topping

Measuring a modest 1,051 ft (320m) in height, the key to Roseberry Toppings appeal and iconic outline is the way its flanks shelve away sharply to leave the summit alone in the clouds, towering over the neighbouring lands. The hill was held in special regard by the Vikings who settled in Cleveland, they gave
Roseberry Topping its present name, which is one
of only a handful of known pagan names in England. 'Roseberry' comes
from 'Old Norse', after the Norse god Odin and 'Topping' is a corruption of 'toppen', an old Norse word for a hill.

Saltburn Valley Gardens, Saltburn

Saltburn Valley Gardens Saltburn

In the 18th century, the Saltburn Valley echoed to the nocturnal sounds of local smuggling gangs grateful for the network of tracks through the densely wooded gills. Today, the valley gardens have lost none of their appeal. The colourful formal displays complement the steep grassy banks which are cut to support a rich diversity of wild flowers.

Summer sees the miniature railway bringing people up from the sea to the gardens and tea rooms.

Errington Woods, New Marske
Errington woods is the ideal setting for a relaxing walk. With the recently refurbished picnic spot and fantastic play area with many wooden sculptures to find, you can have a fun day out with the whole family.
