Looking halfway across England

The view looking westward from Little Roseberry, near Great Ayton, in North Yorkshire.  The church in the middle distance is St Mary's at Nunthorpe.  The houses behind are, in order of increasing distance, Nunthorpe, Marton, Coulby Newham, Hemlington, and Thornaby.  Beyond them, the outskirts of Darlington would be off the left hand side of the image, just before the land starts to rise to Pennines in the distance.  The long bump that is faintly visible on the left-hand part of the horizon is Cross Fell (893m), the highest point in the Pennines.  From Cross Fell you can see the sea on the other side of England.
