Dial Cottage, West Moor

  • Description

    "The two cottages in the photograph were once known as 'Paradise Row'. The first one in the view is now better known as 'Dial Cottage' or 'George Stephenson's Cottage', as this was the home of the famous engineer when he worked at Killingworth Colliery and when he invented the steam locomotives, the 'Blutcher' and the 'Rocket'."
