Cottage and farmhouse, the birthplace of Thomas Bewick
Thomas Bewick is perhaps Northumberland’s greatest artist: a wood engraver and naturalist who revolutionised print art in Georgian England.
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.
Follow 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.
We love bees. We love them so much that we've got two hives and enjoy shouting about how great they are.
If you love them too, or perhaps would like to find out more about them, then come to BeeFest on Sunday 5 July, 10am - 4pm. it's free admission and the Broomley Bee Project will be around. There'll also be an observation hive, art and craft stalls, fun competitions, waggle dancing and much more!
