A Grade II listed granite obelisk war memorial; erected after WWI. A wet morning, which is how it stayed all day.

still a bit foggy so no good views today from the monument. Oliver's Mount is an area of high ground overlooking Scarborough, North Yorkshire, England. It offers impressive views of the town, a tribute monument to the war dead, camping and caravanning at selected times of the year, 10 football pitches, 1 rugby league pitch, and a cafe but may be primarily known for its motorcycle races (however cars have raced here twice, in 1955 and 1956). Oliver's Mount first held a motorcycle race in 1946, and continues to hold motorcycle circuit today, and also holds car rally and car hill-climb events. The site also hosted a new family friendly music festival from summer 2012. Opening 'International Bike Week', the 'Future Of Music - Oliver's Mount Festival' will celebrate local, new music and will be held at Mount Farm, Oliver's Mount. It is being organised by the resident racing club 'Auto 66' and local music management and Promotion company 'Red Cherry Music'. It was first held over the weekend of 16 and 17 June 2012. In 2016 Oliver's Mount was the summit for the final classified climb on the third stage of the Tour de Yorkshire cycle race. The site also houses the broadcasting transmitter which provides TV and radio services to Scarborough and the surrounding areas. Oliver's Mount is named after Oliver Cromwell, as it was thought that he had sited guns there, although there is no evidence that Cromwell visited Scarborough during the Civil War. This name was in use by 1804; previously the hill was known as Weaponness, which now refers to the area of the town around Oliver's Mount and Filey Road, and one of the wards of the borough.

One of those annoying motorbike races around the hill today meant the roads and paths to the top where closed. but I managed to use overgrown paths on the east side to reach the monument, couldnt cross the road to the summit of the HuMP though Good views over scarborough

Views of scarborough, including a distant view of the castle through the mist. Weather starting to clear and beach traffic increasing. Named after Oliver Cromwell and is the venue for motorcycle races and car hill climbing events as the road markings, furniture and bridges with tannoy system evidence. Today it played host to a dog show.

Been up before, years ago and there's a good view over the town. Not sure about logging these intersected sites, not too comfortable with it - but as this is a local landmark I'll give it the benefit. NCOF!

pleasant spot, would be a lovely location on a warmer, calmer day. Good cup of tea in the nearby cafe.
