Captain Cooks Monument

At the foot of Gribdale Gate is a hill that leads to Captain Cooks Monument.

The path that leads to the top is through a forest. The sun shines through the leaves.


and the nettles are lit up.


The sky is very blue.


Flowers bloom, food for insects.


At the top of the hill, Roseberry Topping appears on the horizon, like a shark fin breaking the surface of the water.



The line of the Cleveland hills to the south stretches away in the distance across the Teesside flood plain.


Captain Cooks monument sits on edge of Easby Moor.


Later on, the unimpeded view to Roseberry Topping from Newton under Roseberry shows the side hidden from the top of Easby Moor.
