The 10 metre high artwork is situated in Windmill Hills Town Park a small landscaped area behind Greensfield Business Centre, near the Borough Arms pub.  

The artist worked closely with local school children and their design formed the inspiration for the work. The sculpture is constructed from stainless steel and incorporates a rotating section.  

This contemporary wind vane commemorates the windmills that once stood in the area. Wonderful views of the Tyne Gorge can also be accessed from the viewing platform.
