Grosmont is a peaceful village nestled in the Esk Valley, known for the discovery of ironstone in 1836, when George Stephenson's original railway from Whitby to Pickering was being built. Although the ironstone industry is now a thing of the past, the railway is still a prominent part of the village. As well as heritage services on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, there's an adjoining platform for the Esk Valley Railway which runs from Middlesbrough to Whitby, making Grosmont an easily accessible destination.
