Cleveland is an area in the north east of England, its name means literally cliff-land. East Cleveland is the northern end of a chain of cliffs called the North Yorkshire Heritage Coast. Beneath the highly industrialized Tees estuary there are more lowlands used as farmland. Interesting for us is the extremely hilly South Cleveland, an escarpment called the North York Moors. The distinctive hill called Roseberry Topping overlooking Newton-under-Roseberry is one of the best known symbols of Cleveland. It is the result of intensive mining activities, which gave the originally roughly conical hill a much steeper face.
