29th May 2010 – Day 6 of roadtrip
Today was a really busy day and making use of the long daylight hours, we visited our 4th attraction. Angel of the North is a gigantic angel sculpture which is 20 metres tall with a wing span of 54 metres. It is almost as big as a jumbo jet. Work started in July 1997 and was assembled on site in February 1998. Thereafter, it became one the world’s most visited piece of art. It is located along A1 south of Newcastle Upon Tyne.
