George Stephenson's Birthplace


The humble birthplace of great railway pioneer, George Stephenson, whose entire family lived in just one room. The cottage is located about half a mile from Wylam and is cared for by the National Trust. George Stephenson was born in 1781; you can visit the cottage and see what it looked like back then. The cottage is a Grade II* listed building. You can read this description from Stephenson's biography...
