Today's walk: Hutton Village - Highcliff Nab - Roseberry Topping - Hanging Stone
Hutton Village is tucked away in the corner
of Guisborough and Hutton Lowcross Woods
- the terraced houses were built to house the miners who worked in the old ironstone mines
that once thrived in these parts. More modern houses have been built in the village since.
Much evidence still remains of the industrial past
After climbing the forestry track, looking north, a view of Eston Moor in the far distance
We then reach Highcliff Nab and . . . .
. . . . admire the view north from the top with Guisborough spread out below . . . .
. . . . and then east with distant Warsett Hill just visible in the top left of the photo
The Cleveland Way continues east towards the coast but we turn and . . . .
. . . . faced with a threatening sky . . .
. . . venture out onto Gisborough Moor
Much of the Cleveland Way has been paved in these boggy areas
Looking back east towards Highcliff Wood and Highcliffe Farm
A mile or so further on looking south,
Captain Cook's Monument is prominent on Easby Moor
with Urra Moor (left) and Hasty Bank (right) visible in the far distance
Our first glimpse of the 'back' (east side) of Roseberry Topping
Two more views of Roseberry Topping - we'll go to the top another day!
We go back through the forest to emerge at . . . .
. . . . our final viewpoint of the day - the Hanging Stone.
