Perhaps we could arrange roundal targets to be strategically positioned upon Northumberlandia's voluptuous form as aiming points.

Maybe of interest if you cannot get to visit the new lady in our midst.

I think this summer and after we are going to find rather a lot of visitors in the area.

We may even have to complain about Bloody Tourists.

The Morpeth Herald today tells us that Northumberlandia is now going forward for a National Award against schemes in Weymouth, Birmingham, Snowdonia, and Singapore!

The winner is to be announced in July.

Lets hope our very own lady wins.

The largest human landform in the World.

Some exiles returned and visited our Earth Goddess.

They had expected to be underwhelmed but walked, took in the views and the position and became impressed.

Maybe I influenced them, slightly.

Was on top of The Lady yesterday - ooh no missus, titter ye not - incredible views and I was amazed at the extent of the opencast works behind it. But I still can't make sense out of it's layout - baffles me, that. But I was more impressed by the wildlife - damsel flies (tons) butterflies (even more) and a lovely cheese & tomato toastie at the cafe.

I've been meaning to get up there and get some shots of the sunset as it sets nicely over the top of Plessey late on.

Keith, the opencast is certainly one bloody big hole! It's lovely up there, great views.

Sorry, I meant to get back to this one. I still don't like Northumberlandia as a tourist attraction. I just cannot see the point in the design. There is too much up and down and going around. They might as well have built a rollercoaster on the site. But the views are impressive and the insect life is flourishing.

It looks fantastic from the air as you fly into Newcastle Airport. Previously I've Always kept a look out for St. Mary's lighthouse, Whitley Bay but this is way better.

I have not seen it from the air Canny Lass.

Thanks for the comment, I must fly out soon.

Mind you I do enjoy walking from ground level up and do not mind going round and round.

Health and fitness maybe is an important part of the lady's charm to some people.

The path of least resistance,or an up hill struggle.

      Plessey Woods is a country park situated on the north bank of the River Blyth, in Bedlington, Northumberland. The park is accessed from the A192 in the village of Hartford Bridge, north of Cramlington and south west of Bedlington.
      In 2016 Leading Link opened a youth ran Art Trail around Plessey Woods.
      Around the trail there are wooden owls and painted snakes, including hobbit doors in the trees near the river bank.
      The park extends over 100 acres (0.40 km2) of woodland, meadows and riverside, with a 1½ mile route circumnavigating these habitats and many smaller routes from this loop.
      Free parking is available on site, as is a visitor centre with toilets and shop.
