The Birthplace of Thomas Bewick.

 

   
 

Thomas Bewick was born in the cottage in August 1753, he grew up there until the age of 14 when he moved to Newcastle upon Tyne to become a bound apprentice with the Beilby family. As a boy he liked to run naked and swim in the river.He was always in trouble at school but gradually came to love nature and wildlife. his greatest love was ornithology.

 

Discover his tiny birthplace cottage and farmyard with glorious views over the Tyne Valley, plus a traditional 19th-century farmhouse, the later home of the Bewick family, with an unrivalled collection of his work and an exhibition about his life.

Wqtch and see  Bewick’s wood blocks on their journey to the print room, where regular Sunday afternoon demonstrations bring alive this intricate craft, or explore the delightful cottage gardens, farmyard and paddock walk, perfect for picnicking or playing with the kids.


The Cottage and the Farmhouse are now a museum to show what life was back when Thomas Bewick was alive. The Cottage has been furnished with items which would have been common at the time and the Farmhouse possesses a large collection of Bewick's publications, original engravings and printing equipment.
