angel of the north

Artist Notes
Britain’s most famous piece of public modern art, Antony Gormley’s Angel of the North stands on a hilltop at the head of the Team Valley, on the southern approach to Tyneside.

It has become the most instantly recognisable landmark in the North East since the Tyne Bridge opened in 1928.

The Angel can be seen prominently on arrival at Gateshead from both road and railway. Occupying the site of a former colliery, on the edge of the Great North Forest, it is seen by an estimated 90,000 travellers a day – drivers on the A1 and rail passengers on the East Coast main line (London to Edinburgh) route.
