Penshaw, Penshaw Wood
Agriculture and Subsistence
Block of probably ancient semi-natural woodland. Appears on Greenwood's 1820 map of the area but recent species analysis suggests it may be Ancient Semi-Natural Woodland. There is also a possible reference to the site in accounts from the civil war seige in 1644.
