site by Mike Winstone, Gateshead's sculptor in residence from 1985 to
Tyne and Wear HER(10918): Felling, Gosforth Street, 'Victorian Baker's Shop'
Goats by Sally Matthews on, formerly, Rabbits Bank below the Queen Elizabeth II bridge. They are now very hard to find..the vegetation needs cutting back.
The sculptures are "of welded metal armatures fleshed out with scrap materials and textured aggregate cement".
The sculptures were drawn from real goats at Bill Quay Community Farm.
They reflect the goats head used in the Gateshead symbol now replaced by the "helmet and gate" design..The goats head is a loved symbol although symbolically erroneous
