Description"This is 'Dial Cottage', Westmoor ( formerly Killingworth Colliery in the 19th Century). George Stephenson lived here when he was the engineer at Killingworth Colliery. It was in workshops at the rear of this cottage, that the famous 'Rocket' locomotive was built. The cottage is now a museum. George Stephenson also made the sun dial over the front door, which gives the cottage its name." Photo by Bill Henderson, 2001, and licensed for reuse under a Creative Commons Licence.
