Overview

The world's largest human form sculpted into the landscape.

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.

Lying at the entrance to south east Northumberland, near the town of Cramlington, she is around 34 metres high and 400 metres in length. Most importantly Northumberlandia is the centrepiece for a 19 hectare public park in the urban fringe between the rolling countryside of mid Northumberland and the urban areas of south east Northumberland and Newcastle to the south.

Work has been ongoing constructing the landform since 2010 and Northumberlandia has gradually risen from the ground. 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.

The construction has been privately funded by the Banks Group and Blagdon Estate.

The site is open to public, but please keep dogs on a lead.
