Roseberry Topping from Great Ayton Station Details

Roseberry Topping is a prominent hill in the North York Moors that provides a good morning’s walking and excellent views. This route tackles it from the south, from the railway station at Great Ayton.

The name, which makes me think of some seventies desert mix, is derived from Othensberg, or Odin’s Hill. It was named by the Vikings as they believed it was sacred and so dedicated it to Odin. Over time, this changed to Roseberry and Topping is a local variation on ‘Top’.
