Roseberry Topping covered in snow

These images were kindly supplied by local Redcar walker Mark, who managed to take these images of Roseberry topping whilst walking. We encourage local people to send in their images of local landmarks, anything that you may think may be of interest.

We hope you enjoy the images from what must of been a pretty chilly Mark! Thank you for reading our blog Mark, please share more images if you have any.

Redcar Beacon

After weeks of speculation over thought sturctural faults with the Redcar Beacon, it was finally confirmed this week that in fact the Beacon dubbed the vertical pier is actually structurally sound. The rumour and whisper mongers had us actually believeing we were in Pisa.

As rumours of the Beacon leaning to one side spread like wildfire, Redcar and Cleveland Borough council called in the engineers who confirmed the building is fit and well.

A lot of our readers have commented that the building would bring a lot more visitors to the town if it did actually lean to one side! A seafront amusement arcade owner even had some fun by adding the Redcar Beacon onto a picture of the leaning Tower of Pisa.
