The Angel of the North is one of the most striking sculptures in the country, if not the world. Designed by Antony Gormley it is as big as 4 double-decker buses, with a wingspan of over 50 metres. The statue is made from over 200 tonnes of steel and makes for one impressive site!
This steel colossus stands patiently by the A1, greeting thousands of motorists every year. It’s the pride of Gateshead, the UK and is uniquely a British creation!
