We went to visit Ian's family in the North East last weekend, and while we were there we went for a stroll around Northumberlandia. She is the largest human landform sculpture!

I took some photos on my new Samsung Note 3, and I thought you might be interested to take a peek:

Standing on her forehead, looking down at her... erm... grassy mounds!

If you get a chance to go it's quite a nice place for a stroll. They are currently building a visitors centre too!

Looks very interesting. :)

I live in North Yorkshire but have not heard about it. Is it new?
