The Summerhouse

High cirrus clouds portend the coming of a weather front and wind and rain. The Summerhouse, perched on the bed of Cleveland Ironstone, was built in the 18th-century probably just to enhance the landscape. It is thought a platoon of local volunteer militia were billeted in it while maintaining the beacon on Roseberry summit. One of a chain stretching into the county, the beacon that would have been lit in the event of a Napoleonic invasion.
