Standing watch on the edge of the North York Moors, shaped by geological, natural and human history, Roseberry Topping has remained a constant witness to the passing ages. An iconic part of the landscape, for generations its characteristic shape, visible for miles around, has symbolised ‘home’ for local residents. The challenge of a climb to Roseberry’s summit and the panoramic views on reaching it draw visitors from far and wide, while the changing moods of season, weather and light bring them back time and time again like an old friend. Today’s visitors join the ranks of those captivated and inspired by Roseberry Topping over the centuries, from Viking invaders to a young Captain Cook.

Grand Central Rail is very happy to sponsor part of the Framing the Landscape project with Ashley Jackson – the Yorkshire Artist. Every day we bring people to Yorkshire to visit, work and enjoy the beautiful natural scenery. Our trains do not just pass through the landscape – at Grand Central, we are part of it – closely bound to communities in the heart of Yorkshire. Let our trains take you to a Framing the Landscape destination and Ashley’s new way of looking and appreciating.
