Roseberry Topping & Captain Cooks Monument walk

Roseberry Topping Sunset

Roseberry Topping Sunset

Leave the station and follow the road back over the railway line. On your left there is a farm road that takes you past Aireyholme Farm where a young James Cook lived as a boy. Follow the path up to the top of Roseberry Topping.

Then follow the path back to Newton Moor. Once you go through the gate at the top turn right and keep the wall that is the boundary of Slacks Wood on your right. Follow this path to eventually go down some steps to Gribdale Gate. At the bottom of the steps go diagonally right to the gate near the information board and follow the path up to Captain Cooks Monunent. As you get near the top, just as you’re coming out of the woods keep an eye out for the little memorial to a crashed RAF plane. Once at the monument, enjoy the views. There are a couple of footpaths that then take you down through Easby Wood and bring you back near Great Ayton Station.
