The Angel of the North – #50Before50

A month or so ago we visited The Angel of the North. By coincidence, it happened to be the Angel’s 21st birthday. At the bottom of the Angel is a sign providing details about it’s history and so forth. The cost of the Angel when it was first designed, made and then erected was £800,000; that is an astronomical amount. It is certainly an icon of the North East and it was nice to see it, especially so on a nice Spring day.
