Sutton Bank

Less a hill than a giant inland cliff where the geological gods took a cleaver to the moors and spliced the world in two. From the edge it’s easy to imagine how the first pioneers felt when they came to the lip of the Grand Canyon. The ground plunges away in a vertical dive, leaving views to the end of the earth. James Herriot chose it as his favourite view (although he spent his life looking at the business end of cows), and you can park at the top (Sutton Bank Visitor Centre) and follow the Cleveland Way to revel in the full impact of the altitude.
