What better way to spend a Sunday than a walk on the northern edge of the North Yorkshire Moors?

Our route

Starting from the centre of Great Ayton, where Captain Cook was born and a pretty village with the usual facilities, the walk will include an ascent of Roseberry Topping, a prominent feature visible from miles around, and Cook’s Monument, a tribute to the legendary explorer, set at the summit of Easby Moor.

Walk details

The walk will start at 11 am and should take around four to five hours, following a seven mile route incorporating ancient woodland, high moorland and of course wonderful views.

The total height gain is about 1000 feet, with one fairly short, steep section onto Roseberry Topping, then another much easier ascent onto Easby Moor.

Waterproofs should be carried to ensure it doesn’t rain (!) and walking boots worn; warm clothing and a packed lunch including drink will also be required.

We will meet in the centre of Great Ayton, by the statue of Captain Cook as a young man on the High Green opposite the Co-op. There is on-street parking in Great Ayton.

Open to all members and non-members as well as retired and semi-retired members.
