Description

The Penshaw Monument was built by local architects John and Benjamin Green and is a smaller copy of the Athenian Temple of Theseus - essentially a long and roofless Doric temple supported by pillars with no walls. The Grade 1 listed monument is one of the best known follies in the Northeast and is visible from miles around. Blackened with industrial soot from many previous colleries and factories, it was erected in 1844 as a memorial to John Lambton, 1st Earl of Durham. The monument is now in the care of The National Trust and the smoke-blackened stonework has been left uncleaned to reflect the area's industrial past.
