Penshaw Monument

A few shots taken on Saturday morning of Penshaw Monument near Sunderland.

Built in 1844 the monument is a half-sized replica of the Temple of Hephaestus in Athens.

There is a staircase inside one of the columns to the upper level, these have been closed since 1926 when a 15 year old boy fell to his death on Easter Monday

Neat shots, you got some great perspectives. And to think when I went to Sunderland all I saw was what must be about the world's smallest railway museum.
