Eston Hills, Teesside, United Kingdom
Craig Hornby from Saltburn looks out over Teesside from the top of Eston Nab. Craig is the chairman of the Friends of Eston Hills community group. The group gathered today to celebrate on the top of Eston Nab after raising £15000 in just seven weeks to buy the land. Eston Nab is the rocky summit of the Eston hills on the outskirts of Middlesbrough, Cleveland.
The area will now be returned to public ownership for the first time in hundreds of years and there are plans to raise more funds to create a heritage trail, clean the site up and create a memorial to 375 miners who died when there was an iron mine on the site.
