Cragside Thropton

Description of Cragside Thropton

A unique house originally owned by the Armstrong family, now a National Trust property. The first domestic property to be powered by hydro-electricity, it provides a fascinating insight into the lives of Victorian wealth makers, in this case via armament sales (Vickers Armstrong on Tyneside). Lord Armstrong planted over one million trees to surround the house.
