An Angel that is seen from miles away, built near an old mine at Team Valley which is now a retail park. Some lovely views from this raised area. Nice place to park up and have a picnic.

Have never spent a large amount of time here, but have driven passed a few times at this is an intriguing piece of architecture. If I ever get more time in the area I will certainly visit properly

Took this 'icon' in whilst visiting the North east. No regrets excellent getting close up with the Angel. An excellent visit, even more so because it was free! Excellent car park close by. There are no facilities.

It’s really striking and easy to get to. Nice parking area and explanatory plaques giving the history. If it’s sunny it’s a great stop off
