As one of North Yorkshire’s most recognisable landmarks, Roseberry Topping has served as an icon for the North York Moors as well as an inspiration for landscape photography, and the reason for this is very simple; it offers the viewer a unique view in all directions of some truly stunning English countryside.
Standing at over 1000 feet above sea level, the peak of Roseberry Topping is the place to be if you want panoramic views in all directions; alternatively, the hill itself forms an imposing subject for a print, photo or canvas. We have tried to represent this in our gallery, which is a selection of images that we have taken that we feel shows this magnificent landmark in its best light.
Iconic Local Landmark
The hill itself actually has quite unique geology that has been instrumental in its formation, containing a layer of solid sandstone rock on top of layers of soft shales and clays. Ultimately, however, it was through a combination of geological fault lines and mining that created Roseberry Topping’s distinctive shape, which has often been likened to the Matterhorn.
We also took the time to cross the Moors and have a look at Captain Cook’s Monument, which stands nearby. Built in 1827 to remember North Yorkshire’s most famous explorer, this imposing structure looks over the land that Cook himself once traversed as a child.
