Angel of the North, Newcastle, England

This afternoon I called in to photograph the famous Angel of the North sculpture which is located near Newcastle upon Tyne in N.E. England.  This stunning piece of public sculpture dominates the local skyline. Key facts are:

  • The work of Antony Gormley
  • 200m high
  • 54m span
  • Construction used 200 tonnes of steel.
  • Cost GBP1.0m in 1998. Mainly sourced from lottery fiunds and grants.
