Eston Hills, Teesside, United Kingdom
A temporary sign is taped to the base of the monument on the top of Eston Nab on Teesside. A community group called the Friends of Eston Hills have recently raised £15000 in just seven weeks to buy the land and return it to public ownership. Today they held a celebration on top of the Nab which is the rocky summit of the Eston Hills to mark the occasion.
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.
