Highcliff Plantation

On the route of the Cleveland Way this stand of beech trees is probably the last remnants of the Highcliff Plantation that stood long before the Forestry Commission began their mass planting of larch and spruce. On a fine day the seat would have provided views across to Roseberry

The Scottish naturalist John Muir wrote “another glorious day, the air as delicious to the lungs as nectar to the tongue”. His words are true even on a day as bleak as this.
