Roseberry from Pinchinthorp

Another view of Roseberry Topping, this time from Pinchinthorp on the Great Ayton to Guisborough Road. Pinchinthorp is an ancient township, the name deriving from Pincium, or Pinchun, a Norman family who held land here in the 12th century. To describe Pinchinthorp today as a hamlet is a bit of an overstatement.

  1. Mic, is “Topping” a local or regional name around here for little, isolated hills or tors ? I’m asking because there’s another one, isn’t there, a bit further south called Blakey Topping. It’s far smaller than Roseberry and it’s the only other one that I know of.
