On a spur of high ground this site has a superb view out across Robin Hood's Bay. No known excavation or any other information, just some spectacular pictures.

Access: Off the A171 to Whitby, just after B1416 junction a gate off to the right signposted Ramsdale leads through a cattle grid to a track across the moor. Half a kilometer on, just over the brow of the hill the track widens out where a small path crosses it. Turn right down the path and continue for 400m. Branch off across the moorland to the right another few hundred meters, and up to a raised area near a tumulus.

Personal: My favourite of the Yorkshire sites described, due to its superb siting.
