Belmanbank Gate

The top of the climb south out of Guisborough onto Gisborough Moor with a fine but hazy view to the Teesside Wind Farm offshore at Redcar. Belman or Belmont is said to mean ‘beautiful mountain’ and has also been variously written as Belmund or Baumund. Bank refers to the sharp climb onto the high moors and gate is the old English for a road. A glorious winter day.
