The world's largest human landform sculpture. Northumberlandia is a landmark feature designed by world renowned artist Charles Jencks, which celebrates the earth's natural power and the human ability to reshape landscape into a dramatic form.
Near the town of Cramlington, 'The Lady of the North' is around 34m high and 400m in length. Most importantly Northumberlandia is the centrepiece for a country park with magnificent views across the Northumberland countryside.
In total around 1.5 million tonnes of soil and clay from Shotton Surface Mine has been used to create this ambitious piece of public art.
Today the site benefits from a Visitor Centre with a small Cafe open from Wednesday to Sunday. Visitors can enjoy a woodland walk (with disk rubbing trail), wildlife interpretation boards, a bird-feeding station and various events throughout the year.
The site is open to the public, but please keep dogs on a lead.
