On Saturday we all had a long day out travelling up north to near where Judith & Leigh used to live - and Crybbe too! We were going to visit friends and have a look at a new visitor attraction in Northumberland which is up near the border between England and Scotland. There has been lots of mining in this county for many years but nowadays the mining companies have to restore the land when they have finished mining and create green spaces for wildlife and trees and plants. In this place they decided to make a huge sculpture out of the earth - of a goddess they called Northumberlandia!
It is so huge you need a map to walk round it - it is the biggest human landform sculpture in the world!
First you walk through some woodland and then there is a path to the sculpture:
We had a good explore and met lots more dogs with their peeps:
Below you can see a hand with a pointing finger - and tiny peeps :-)
We climbed up to the top of the head - Aoife and Trilby in the lead:
past the funny notice:
and I looked over to see the view:
Down below was one of the eyes!
and the viewing towers:
This is a view closer to the face:
Then it was time to walk back down and head back to the car - goodbye Northumberlandia!
