The Lady of the North

By Linda Tancs

A new English lady is borne out of over a million tons of rock, clay and soil in the English countryside near the Northumberland town of Cramlington.   Christened Northumberlandia and coined “the lady of the north,” the colossal depiction of a reclining female figure, 100 feet high and a quarter mile long, is the centerpiece of a new public park.  Open year round, the 46-acre community park features free public access and four miles of footpaths on and around the sculpture.
