George Stephenson's Birthplace
Only open during the summer from 12-5. This unassuming stone tenement lays claim to have housed the giant of the Industrial Revolution, George Stephenson. From around 1781, the year of Stephenson's birth, he and his family lived in one room of this miner's cottage. There's no parking at the actual site so it's best to park a half mile away in Wylam and take a leisurely stroll along a cinder path to the house.
