5th December 2010, Great Ayton to Roseberry Topping

posted 20 Nov 2010, 10:10 by Steve Roberts   [ updated 20 Nov 2010, 10:14 ]
This month’s walk is a short stroll (with one steep climb) out of the historic village of Great Ayton and up to Roseberry Topping with its spectacular views towards the Durham Moors on one side and the coast on the other.

Great Ayton itself is well worth exploring with its historic centre and numerous tea shops!

As this walk is only just over 5 miles I haven’t included a second walk this month. The climb up Roseberry Topping is steep but quite short and mainly on stone flags so I am hoping it won’t put anyone off. There are a number of stiles.

Walkers will need to bring warm clothing, waterproofs and stout shoes or boots, not forgetting food and drink!. There are plenty of cafes in Great Ayton to gather in at the end of the day and share experiences and thoughts for future activities.

Everyone is welcome, monks or lay people, families and dogs.

Anyone who would like to come should just turn up at the start in Great Ayton in time to leave by 10.30.

Distance: 5 miles
