Whitby

Whitby is a great day out; places to go, things to see and chips to indulge with! My visit was a two parter as the first time I had two VERY trying children in tow and I was done after a couple of hours. #callmeweak

Outing one began when the smallest human, along with my cat, crawled into my bed at 7:20am, it was time to wake up.

Guisborough Forest

17:30 rolled around, the sun still shining bright, and I’d not done much apart from lounge around in my pj’s. I needed to get out.

Following our walk up Roseberry Topping the previous day (see blog post here) I fancied another walk, just with less chance of injury. My goal at the moment is to explore all the places local that often I’d of just ignored.

(For the 6 months I have resided in Ingleby Barwick I’ve gone as far as Cineworld, Uni and Dominos- oops, my bad)

Roseberry Topping

I saw a Instagram post which asked “Do you even live in Stockton If you haven’t been to Roseberry Topping?” So I went.

Roseberry Topping is described by the national trust as a ‘distinctive and iconic landmark.’ This is due to its shape as a result of geological fault and a mining collapse in 1912. It is just 1,049 feet (320m) high, but don’t let this deceive you. Believe me. I’ve walked/climbed a few things in my life so far, one being Mount. Helvellyn in the Lake District (age 10) and in my opinion Roseberry Topping is still a challenge. I don’t know how many routes up there are but the one we naturally took following from the car park hits quite fast.

York Ice Trail!

York’s a lovely little place rich with history and culture, as well as attractions and various eateries.  With lots on offer it’s a great day or weekend trip.

We arrived later than planned. You know how it is, slept in a little ’cause i was up all hours doing uni work, throw a child in the mix and then waiting an hour to get parked and things are delayed. Ah well, what can you do? So 3pm rolls around and we finally get out into York centre.
