Area highlights


Angel of the North


Gateshead Council’s brief was simple; to create an ambitious artwork that would become a landmark of the region’s character. Antony Gormley’s winning design is now one of the most viewed pieces of art in the world. It is seen by more than one person every second. That’s 90,000 every day or 33 million every year.
With its prime location, on a panoramic hilltop by the A1, the Angel of the North has become one of the most famous artworks in the region. The sculpture was installed in February 1998 and over the last twenty years has become one of the most recognisable pieces of public art ever produced, winning many accolades and awards.
The Angel of the North is located close to A1 and is easy to reach by both public transport and car.

Ravensworth Golf Club


A fantastic 18 hole golf course that was formed in 1906. The tight fairways and fast-running greens combine to provide a good test of golf for players of all abilities.

Bowes Valley Nature Reserve


This was the site of a clay pit and brickworks in an area with a history of coal mining. The clay pit was used in the 1990s as a landfill site and has been gradually restored by the waste management company Sita UK. It is now a nature reserve with a network of new public rights of way forming a green space for people and wildlife.

Lamesley Pasture Nature Reserve


One of the few undeveloped river floodplains in the area, Lamesley Pastures contains two designated Local Wildlife Sites.
The land is being managed as winter water meadows with a system of ponds and ditches that control water levels to provide optimum conditions for wading birds such as lapwing, curlew, redshank and snipe.
New grasslands have been created to the east with a series of ponds and reedbeds. These provide habitats for farmland animals and birds, numbers of which are in serious decline, like skylarks, grey partridge and brown hare.
New hedges also provide homes for a wide variety of plants and animals including tree sparrows.
Durham Wildlife Trust took over the management of this site from Gateshead Council in June 2014 and will be continuing the work to develop the area for wildlife

Designed exclusively for the semi-retired and retired aged over 45, Angel of the North park provides a luxury lifestyle in a sought-after location at an affordable price.

This is the newest addition to the Wyldecrest Parks Portfolio. We will be doing development work in the park and we have plots available to view and reserve.
