23/284 Chimney on hilltop
west of B6341,
420 metres north-
west of Cragside
Chimney. Third quarter of C19, for Lord Armstrong. Squared stone. Square
stack 2.5 metres high, with coping fallen.
This chimney, along with another (q.v.) lower down the hill, was part of an
elaborate ventilation system for Lord Armstrong's conservatory (q.v.);
a fire lit at the base of each chimney would draw smoky air up a long
underground flue away from the heating apparatus below the conservatory.
Included for historical interest.
