Cleveland - Blank Verse Poem by John Reed Appleton 1882

Cleveland - A poem in Blank Verse by John Reed Appleton was published in Tweddell's North of England Tractates No 1 1882


This poem seems to be looking out from the Wainstones on the North Yorkshire Moors towards Roseberry Topping and Hartlepool etc.

Tweddell has written extensively of John Reed Appleton in his Bards and Authors of Cleveland and South Durham 1872 (book available as free download on this site) and was a close walking companion on the Cleveland Hills.
