Captain Cooks Monument To Roseberry Topping
A favourite for Yorkshire photography is this location situated on the Cleveland Way National Trail. From here just under the Captain Cook Monument on the Easby Moor on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park offers a stunning view back on to Roseberry Topping. Most of this area was mined at some stage for Alum and Iron Stone and although a lot of the tunnels and shafts are now hidden, evidence of mining activities is most obvious on the slopes of Roseberry Topping. Back in 1912 part of Roseberry collapsed and it the cause was believed to be due to the mining of Alum and Iron Stone underneath giving her the distinctive shape she has today.
