Photographer's Note

This shot was taken from the top of Roseberry Topping. It is of the “summerhouse” that, despite extensive research, no-one knows its purpose. The plaque on the side says it is a shooting box but this idea has been discounted. The little plateau on which it stands is man-made. This view shows quite clearly that the plateau is not a natural land feature. It is mainly because of this, the consensus seems to be the summerhouse is purely a landscape feature, although no-one knows for certain. It is thought to have been built in the 18th century. It was restored in 1983 with help from the North Yorkshire Moors National Park Committee.
