Photographer's Note

The monument is situated on Penshaw Hill, and can be seen from miles around, Ive just come back from a trip to grandparents who live in the Houghton Le Spring area, and decided to get near to this monument to snap it (as Ive only seen it from a distance as a child)

This monument was erected in 1844, designed by John and Benjamin Green and modelled on the Theseum at Athens. It is dedicated to John George Lambton, first Earl of Durham and the first Governor of Canada.
