A new high-tech floodlighting and CCTV system will be trialled at Penshaw Monument over the Bank Holiday weekend.
Eighteen LED lights have been installed at the base of each pillar to allow a softer, white effect. The floodlights can also be programmed to display colour changing light effects meaning special anniversaries or events such as football celebrations could be highlighted in colour on the landmark.
The £43,000 investment will reduce energy costs by up to 80 per cent and save around £8,000 a year in running costs.
