Brought parents to Scotland in June 08. While we were on our way travelling back from Scotland to Leeds, we stopped by at New Castle to visit Angel of North. This fabulous steel statue reaches the height of 65 feet and the angel spreads and stretches her wing through out 175 feet long. It's amazing how they could place a 200 tones steel watching over this place. The secret is: this angel is supported by a basement that is buried 175 feet into the ground.
