The Hob on the Hill is an iron age burial mound, opened by Canon Atkinson in 1863. It now marks the boundary of the Guisborough, Lockwood and Commondale parishes.
RC 1798 is inscribed on one side, which relates to landowner Robert Chalenor.
This sign relates to the opening times of the pub during the livestock mart, as far as I can tell a pub called the Red Lion existed here until around 1970.
As far as I can make out it says :-
These premises are permitted to be open 11am to 10pm on Tuesdays for the convenience of those attending the mart.
Between the Waterfall Viaduct and the old road bridge the beck goes through an old culvert
It looks like it was constructed from brick after the substantial sandstone wall which supports the embankment on which the railway ran (although that is also being undermined by the water)
Internally the culvert in not in fantastic shape as large chunks of its concrete lining have peeled away.
Passing under the old road bridge the large modern culvert which runs under the A171 can be seen.
The location of the road between Slapewath and Guisborough has changed over the years, just to the south of its current course remains a much older sandstone bridge.
Its now surrounded by heavy undergrowth and is missing a few blocks in places.
The remains of a cobbled surface can be found on top.
Looking at old maps i would say it was the only road shown on the 1938 map, the 1958 suggests both exist and by 1968 its just the new more northerly location.
There are numerous wooden carvings immediately around the car park area of the visitors centre.
These owls are the same as those in Errington Woods so must be by Steve Iredale
His work is generally animals, so this is most likely his too.
This one seems a little more basic, perhaps some sort of workshop of kids ?
This walker is Steve Iredale again and dates from the Diabetes UK Great North Walk in 2010
This final carving of a face into a live tree is very interesting.
A Kibble is a large iron tub, usually used for hauling material in a mine shaft. This one is thought to be associated with the Codhill / Hutton ironstone mines
The history of the Codhill Kibble is unclear as it was found near Highcliffe Farm part-filled with concrete, it was moved to Guisborough Forest Walkway after preservation work.
An ironstone tramway between the Chalenor mines near Guisborough and the Eston mines was built in 1914 when the underground link was severed.
Several traces of this remain, including this culvert for Moordale Beck with the 1914 date carved into the arch.
The arching has been strengthened a long time ago as the two lower tubes both resemble riveted boiler pipes.
