Roseberry Topping watches over Teesside like a big friendly giant. For those, like me, who grow up in the area, its crooked peak signifies childhood days in the country. And, when we return home, no matter how long we’ve been away, its distinctive silhouette on the horizon acts likes a familiar face welcoming us home.
