The second instalment of 'My Patch', featuring more of my favourite locations in the North-East of England, captured in video from the sky. First up is Egglestone Abbey, the charming ruins of a small monastery of Premonstratensian 'white canons', picturesquely set above a bend in the River Tees near Barnard Castle.
Remains include much of the 13th century church and a range of living quarters, with traces of their ingenious toilet drainage system.
The second part of the video features a visit to Penshaw Monument, a folly on a hill on the outskirts of Sunderland, Tyne & Wear. The Monument is a striking landmark of the North East and a symbol of home to those who live in the area. In 1844 it was built in memory of John George Lambton. Although it was designed to look its best from a distance, it’s definitely worth a closer look, as you'll see in my video.
