Cherryburn


Cherryburn is a National Trust location which includes the farmhouse and cottage which was the birthplace of Thomas Bewick (1753-1828), a renowned wood engraver and naturalist who revolutionised print art in Georgian England. At Cherryburn you can see an extensive collection of Bewick's work and an exhibition about his life. Cherryburn is a Grade II listed building.

Cherryburn is a cottage in Mickley, Northumberland, England, which was the birthplace of Thomas Bewick, an English wood engraver and ornithologist. The cottage, its adjacent farmhouse and large grounds, have been managed by the National Trust since 1991 when they took over responsibility for the site from the Bewick Birthplace Trust. Cherryburn is now open to the public 7 days a week between February and November.

History

Thomas Bewick was born in the cottage in August 1753, he grew up there until the age of 14 when he moved to Newcastle upon Tyne to become a bound apprentice with the Beilby family.

The Cottage and the Farmhouse are now a museum to show what life was back when Thomas Bewick was alive. The Cottage has been furnished with items which would have been common at the time and the Farmhouse possesses a large collection of Bewick's publications, original engravings and printing equipment.
