Angel of the North
A view of the A1 looking south as seen by the Angel.
The Angel was created in 1998 by Anthony Gormley. It is sixty-five feet
high with wings of a hundred and seventy-five feet wide, tilted forward by 3.5 degrees.
This is still Britain's largest sculpture and is reputed to be the largest
angel sculpture in the world.
Getting a little more intimate. From just above the left wing.
Looking south-west. The Angel stands on a hill by the A1 south of
Gateshead and west of the A167.
