Stell


'Stell' is a a sculpture by Colin Wilbourn located on the footpath along the banks of the River North Tyne near Falstone. It was sculpted in 2006 and consists of a stone bench with an enclosing wall. It celebrates local heritage with steel throws over the benches which have patterns designed by local people to reflect what is important to them, both past and present. The central floor stone names the farmsteads, including Plashetts and Hawkhirst, which were submerged by the formation of Kielder Water in 1982.
