Angel of the North

Travelled past this many times which can be seen clearly just off the A1 near Gateshead. After all this time I finally managed to stop and have a look at this 200 tonne, 20 metre high, 54 metre wing spanned structure.

There is a parking area at the top so easy access to it even though something like 150,000 a year come to view it. Interesting to read that the wings are angled at 3.5 degrees forward as not straight on the sides as one would have thought, the idea is to give a “sense of embrace”

Right where’s my camera
