angel of the north and me




My dad (laurence) took me to beamish for his 56th birthday. We stopped of at the angel of the north, on the way, and my dad took some photos of me on it. The angel of the north is a sculpture comissioned by Gateshead council, the world renound sculptor Antony Gormley, was selected from a selection of candidates to design, and build this sculpture.

Ace photos, Toby, and I particularly like the one with you in it because it gives more of a sense of how VAST the sculpture is.

Looks like a fun day out - I had no idea quite how big the statue was until I saw these photos!

Cool :) Its great that you can go right up to it and touch it.
(and Penny will now know quite how far off I was in my estimation of how big it is! Well, it looks smaller from the road...)

Excellent photos Toby, I didn't realise it was so huge, but I suppose it has to be to be seen from the road.

Hey Toby...you probably passed my house on the way up!! The angels OK but I'd have preferred a more realistic statue....(am I old fashioned or wot!)

Blimey you've added loads to your blog since my last visit!!

Fab photos Toby. I've never visited the area, and didn't realise just how big the statue is. Helz x
