If you are a morning person or looking for a free, energetic activity resulting in a beautiful view then this is something for you!
Overview of Roseberry Topping and Surroundings:
Roseberry Topping is one of the natural beauties of Teesside. Standing at 1049 ft high, so not the biggest hill, but provides a lovely view. Climbing this hill is one of the many different adventures that you can take in this area, others include:
- Visiting Captain Cook’s Monument
- Explore the Bluebell woods
- Walk through the heather moorland
- Discover the long abandoned quarry
If you are feeling really adventurous you can take a longer trip down to the nearest town of Great Ayton – there are plenty of coffee shops to refuel at!
After checking the sunrise time the night before – we arrived at the bottom of the hill at 6am in the pitch black, which was a struggle on a Saturday morning! Taking us 30 minutes to climb at a steady pace, with plenty of food breaks, we eventually reached the top. Whilst getting our breath back the sky started to become lighter. At 6:47am this beautiful photo was captured.
The struggles of an early morning wake up and exercise was more than worth it in the end for the breathtaking view.
For anyone wanting to re-create this activity we recommend taking a torch and planning your route wisely (as there are several ways to climb up which vary in difficulty).
We would highly recommend experiencing this sometime if your life!
