Newton Under Roseberry

[Transcribed information mainly from the early 1820s]

"NEWTON UNDER ROSEBERRY, also known as Newton, or Newton in Cleveland, a parish in the wapentake and liberty of Langbargh; 5 miles NE. of Stokesley. The church is a small ancient structure (see Churches for photograph), and the living a perpetual curacy of which the Rev John Thompson is the incumbent. Population 119."


"ROSEBERRY TOPPING, a hill in the parish of Newton under Roseberry, wapentake and liberty of Langbargh; ¾ mile ESE. of Newton under Roseberry, 3 miles S. of Guisborough; a very steep mountain, covered with verdure from its base to the summit; it is seen at a great distance, and serves as a land mark for sailors. Near the top is a fine spring of excellent water; to the north west is the beautiful vale of Cleveland, with the county of Durham; to the east a view of the German ocean; and to the south the prospect is bounded by a chain of hills, rising above each other in majestic succession. Roseberry Topping is supposed to have been the Mars of the Saxons, as Freeburgh hill, within three miles of it, was said to have been their Venus. The altitude of Roseberry Topping is 1488 feet above the level of the sea."
