Penshaw Monument


Hello and welcome!

This is a photo of a well-known landmark in Sunderland. Known locally as Penshaw Monument, it was built in 1844 in honour of John George Lambton, the First Earl of Durham. It can be seen for miles around and as kids we knew we were almost home when we could see the Monument in the distance from the motorway.
