Description"Bowes Museum (listed grade I) was built by J E Watson of Newcastle upon Tyne to designs by Jules Pellechet (1829-1903) during the period 1869 to c1885. It is in the style of a French chateau of the C17th, with a symmetrical front in which a central entrance block is flanked by ranges with attached pavilions. It is positioned on a platform cut into rising land at the centre of the site with a terrace and parterre in front of the building integral to the design. The building remains in use as a museum open to the public." Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2014.
