ABOUT THE IMAGE
Penshaw Monument (actually The Earl of Durham's Monument) is a Victorian folly built as a half-sized replica of the Temple of Hephaestus in Athens (although it only has half the number of columns and the original would have had a roof) and is located in Washington, Sunderland, Tyne and Wear, England. It is dedicated to John George Lambton and because of this Penshaw Hill is credited in some legends as the one around which the Lambton Worm curled itself (however the less impressive Worm Hill nearby has a better claim). Thanks to the merging of various ancient languages, Penshaw Hill actually means 'Wooded-hill Hill'.
