Newbiggin couple

A controversial sculpture of a couple looking out to sea at Newbiggin-by-the-sea

The plinth

This painted bronze statue of a couple looking out to sea split the locals when it was unveiled in 2007 as part of a restructuring of Newbiggin Bay and the building of new sea defences with the restoration of 500 000 tonnes of sand lost due to mining subsidence in the area.
