Tue 14th June 2022 Roseberry Topping & Great Ayton, North Yorkshire Walk


8 places available



Join us for a short walk of just over two miles to Roseberry Topping from Great Ayton. We start our walk from the train station and with trains from Newcastle its sure to be a great day out. An anytime day return is £13.30 with a railcard. Please book the 8.40am train from Newcastle which stops at other stations including Heworth and Sunderland and all stations through to Middlesbrough. After the walk, we will visit the village of Great Ayton with time on our hands to visit the Captain Cook Museum or the Cook Memorial Garden.

Don’t fancy the walk? Join us for the day to visit Great Ayton.

Although the walk is short, it is quite steep rising to around 320 m where you are rewarded with amazing views of the surrounding moors. We will have plenty of time to take in the views  with a slow walk to the summit.

Roseberry Topping is up there with one of the many mysteries of Ancient England.  Dating back to the middle and lower Jurassic periods, between 206 and 165 million years ago, and formed of sandstone, it really is a site to behold and a hill to climb.

Bronze-age discoveries were made on the slopes of the hill and are now located in Sheffield City Museum. Roseberry Topping was occupied during the Iron Age; walled enclosures and the remains of huts dating from the period are still visible in the hill’s vicinity.

A booking form is not required for this walk though you must book your place.
