The Angel of the North

On our way home from Beamish, we stopped off at The Angel of the North. It is a sculpture designed by Antony Gormley and is one of the most famous pieces of public art in Britain. It is made of steel and stands 66 feet tall with a wingspan of 177 feet which curve slightly inward so as to make it seem as if it is embracing the surrounding area.
