Rough area north of The Nab
Rough area north of The Nab
This difficult area seems to have defeated any attempts to make much use of it, and is mostly bracken with a scattering of mainly birch trees.
The escarpment to the south marks a dramatic geological change to underlying limestone - and much more usable farmland.

A striking feature is the 'notch' on the flank of the promontory, this is likely mostly manmade as traffic struggled up the hill for centuries before the modern north-south route through Hutton-le-Hole. You can follow the old track across the Lowna Road and it intersects the present main Blakey road a couple of miles further north. Often there are two tracks side by side, a sort of dual carriageway!
