Penshaw monument

We had a fun visit to Penshaw Monument today with friends. The monument was built in 1844 as a half-size replica of the Temple of Hephaestus in Athens. and has great views far around. One of our home ed friends read us the local folklore tale of the Lambton Worm, a snake-like creature that was caught in the River Wear and grew to terrorise animals and people before being chopped in half by John Lambton, the boy who originally caught the worm.

Harry drew his own Lambton Worm and we spent a lovely couple of hours in the play area too.
