NZ0863 : The Prudhoe Badger

The Prudhoe Badger
The Prudhoe Badger
Giant earthwork figure cut into the hillside overlooking the Station Road/Prudhoe Bypass roundabout. It was constructed in 1994 to commemorate the opening of the Bypass, but over the following years it fell into disrepair until it was restored by youngsters from the Prince's Trust in 2015. As with other giant hillside figures (notably the White Horses of Wiltshire and elsewhere), it is difficult to get a good undistorted view of the feature.
