A brief history of Penshaw Village

The Church of All Saints, Penshaw, was built in 1746 as a chapel-of-Ease to Houghton le Spring. The Reverend Richard Stonehewer, Rector of Houghton-le-Spring for 42 years, founded the Perpetual Curacy of Penshaw in 1746 but it was not until 1838 that Penshaw became a parish in its own right.
