A TREE-mendous new feature, pictured, has been added to Shiremoor’s adventure playground.

A giant head carved out of a wind-felled oak, doubling up as an artwork, has been produced by the Cumbrian art collective My Giddy Aunt.

It offers a viewing platform accessible by climbing a cargo net, and a 5m tunnel leads to a den inside.

The Brenkley Avenue play area is open from 3.30pm to 6.30pm Tuesday to Friday and on Saturdays from noon to 4pm.
