Special Interest

This quaint small stone cottage was built circa 1760 to accommodate mining families. The furnishings reflect the year the great rail pioneer, George Stephenson, was born here (1781), when his whole family lived in the one room. The property is managed by the National Trust.

Don't miss

  • Treading the same flagstones as young George did.
  • Listening to the live interpretation.
  • Learning about the pioneering steam locomotive Rocket.
