Anything Tyneside can do we can do better!

Would I be able to see it from Lane Top. I can clearly see what I think is an immense landmark itself the Emley Moor tower.

 

Shame you can't see Meadowhall from there either! (I have no idea where Lane Top is either) :hihi:

Just think a year a few years from now when the novelty has worn off, and the scrapmen have had a go, the graffiti artists have climbed up and of course the obligatory Traffic Cone attachment has been added perhaps it will look like this:

They had better alarm it up well though or itll be crawling with scrapthieves with oxy-aceteline torches in no time!!

 

Let them try. You can't cut stainless steel with oxy-acetylene.

It would be great with the viewing platform I think. Certainly worth a day out :)

funny people are all up for a "landmark" when they constantly complain about certain mosques being a blight on the landscape :suspect::loopy::help:

We had two perfectly good 'landmarks' beside the M1 that everyone knew meant you'd arrived in Sheffield (moreso if you were travelling southbond) and we let them tear them down.

I think you'll find a heck of a lot of people from the North East are very attached to the 'Angel'.....and lots of people not from there love it too.....The terminator though (I think) knocks spots off it....

 

I am originally from the North East and can confirm I have never met anyone yet who actually likes it, that includes family and friends numbering a great many. I also used to drive tourist coaches on UK tours and we changed our route so as to avoid it because it was embarrasing having a coach load of people laughing at it.

You must lead a very boring life if you think this is worth a day out to see.
