National Trust, Cragside

Illuminated with hydro-electricity and powered by hydraulics.

Cragside was created by two remarkable individuals, Lord William and Lady Margaret Armstrong. With Lord Armstrong’s passion for engineering and innovation mixed with Lady Armstrong’s love of natural sciences; this duo created the Cragside estate we know today. Together they transformed a rocky Northumberland heathland into an efficient landscape to create the first house in the world to be lit by electricity.

Without doubt, one of the very best National Trust houses I have ever visited. Sadly, storm Arwen decimated the woodlands, and it’s going to take a while to make it safe again.
