Impressive views of Roseberry Topping are a feature of the local area. Scandinavian settlers called it ‘Othenesberg’ meaning Odin’s Hill. The unique shape is due to subsidence associated with mineral workings. It is still used as a beacon hill, where a fire lit in a cauldron would, in bygone times, warn of invasion. From its summit good views of Middlesbrough and the Teesside conurbation to the North, the North York Moors to the south and, on a good day, the North York Dales and Pennines to the far west can be enjoyed
