Charles Jencks to create Green Goddess sculpture in Northumberland park

Work will begin next year on a 400m long, 24m high sculpture of a woman lying down, in a new public park next to Shotton mine in Northumberland, and will cost 2.5M. The 1.5M tonnes of soil from the mine will form the “green goddess”. It will take about a year to build.

Charles Jencks is a leading figure in British Landscape Architecture. He created the Garden of Cosmic Speculation in his private garden at Portrack, Dumfries,  I visited it last year on its one open day per year, it was amazing, and I cant wait to see the green goodess.
