The Angel of the North is a contemporary steel sculpture of an angel designed by Antony Gormley. It stands on a hill, in Gateshead, on the southern edge of Low Fell, overlooking the A1 and A167 roads into Tyneside, and the East Coast Main Line rail route. At 20 metres high, the 208-tonne Angel is higher than a five-storey building. Its wings are 54 metres wide – almost the same as a jumbo jet.
