Northumberlandia is a unique piece of public art set in a 46 acre community park with free public access and 4 miles of footpaths on and around the landform.

The centrepiece of the park is Northumberlandia, a stunning human landform sculpture of a reclining lady. Made of 1.5 million tonnes of rock, clay and soil, she is 100 feet high and a quarter of a mile long.

Far from being a rigid manicured art form, Northumberlandia is a living part of the countryside that will mature over time and change with the seasons. What you see when you visit is only the start of something that will evolve through generations.

An additional point of interest is that you can see into the Shotton Surface mine from the top of Northumberlandia a particular attraction for fans of big machinery.

Kestrels can often be seen hovering over the landform itself. The woodland trails harbour woodland birds and spectacular fungi (in the autumn), whilst the grasslands are hotspots for butterflies and meadow flowers. The ponds do attract some birdlife and insects, including damselflies, and biodiversity will continue to improve with naturalisation and improved planting schemes.
