This unique hill has become an iconic landmark for the people of Cleveland and countless numbers are drawn to climb its slopes every year.

Despite cutting an imposing figure on the skyline, Roseberry is a dwarf when compared to the great mountains of the world. At 1050 feet (320m) it is less than a third of the size of Scafell Pike – England's highest peak. And yet its diminutive nature is also one of its charms. The short but steep walk from the public car park in Newton-Under-Rosberry can be completed by anyone with a basic level of fitness in around half an hour and when you finally reach the top the spectacular views make you feel like you are standing on the roof of the world.

This wonderful hill was a source of awe for ancient Britons and Viking invaders, ignited the spirit of adventure for a famous explorer and inspired legends of Northumbrian princes.
