Roseberry Topping


A large foreground tree stands over a bank of bluebells, with its branches dangling over the distant Roseberry Topping hill in Yorkshire. Roseberry Topping is a distinctive hill with a jagged cliff and decapitated cone, in North Yorkshire. It has an abundance of bluebells nearby. It was occupied during the Iron Age with walled enclosures, and subsequently by Vikings, who settles here and gave it its present name. This derived from Ouesberry, which came from Othensberg and originally Othenesberg. The first part is an Old Norse name Authunn and bjarg means ‘Rock’. ‘Topping’ is a Yorkshire derivation of Old English ‘Topp’, the top of a hill. Heathens brought oblations to high hills, which explains the discovery of a Bronze Age hoard here.
