There are quite a few photos taken by Lindsey Devons (Harrison 1969-73) April 2002. This nice one of Cook's monument with Roseberry in the background.

There are quite a few new photos taken by Lindsey Devons (Harrison 1969-73) April 2002, including this nice one of Cook's Monument with Roseberry in the background.

Not far from Cook's Monument one can see Ayton Village spread far out below - a sight many will remember, especially when they realised they had too little time to get back to School for Tea! Photo - Lindsey Devons (Harrison 1969-73) April 2002

Roseberry Topping - from the path up to Cook's Monument. Photo taken in 1989. 

New good quality photos of Roseberry are always welcome - this is now a view on can tire of easily.

Roseberry Topping - photographed by William Pine in January 2006 from just outside Great Broughton. A bit of winter to contrast the late summer sunshine from the photo above.

Another winter photograph from William Pine taken at the same time and place as the one above. Who from School doesn't remember the snow this deep, getting wet and no where to dry things out?
If you walk up Station Road and past the Station you come to the White Cottages pictured here. If memory serve correctly these cottages played host to John Wesley mid 18th Century. Photo: Lindsey Devons (Harrison 1969-73) April 2002.

Ayton Station today

This is for those who walked - in convoy - to Ayton Station at the end of term; sadly a shadow of its former LNER  splendour! 

How could anyone replace the beautiful original Victorian station with a recycled bus shelter?

The photo below gives an idea of what it used to be like.

This photo of Ayton Station turned up in the Archives. It was probably taken in the early 1900s and depicts a group of Ayton scholars, together with a number of adults, waiting for a train so it must have been end of term. 

What a difference in the station building! The railway came to Ayton for passenger traffic in 1868 and it was a busy station with many Ayton village residents commuting into Middlesbrough.
