Details

Driving through the gently rolling landscape on the edge of the North York Moors, you cannot fail to notice the craggy peak of Roseberry Topping standing proudly like a church spire amongst a cluster of cottage rooftops.

The hill is known locally as ‘the Yorkshire Matterhorn’ because its shape reminds people of the pyramidal peak of that mighty mountain. Straddling the Swiss and Italian border, and standing 4478m tall, the Matterhorn is one of Europe’s highest mountains.

What has produced Roseberry Topping’s distinctive shape and made visitors think of a mountain over 965 miles away - follow the link below for the answer...
