Wynyard Hall

Ok, what’s the connection?

Well, Wynyard Hall, the home of the Londonderrys, was built with stone from Penshaw Quarry, adjacent to Penshaw Monument – the plaque under its portico says so.

It’s a fine building, latterly owned by Sir John Hall of Newcastle United Football Club and Metrocentre fame.
