Mr Monkey in Berwick

"That's peculiar. The road goes through the middle of the house."

Mr Monkey approaching Cragside house Mr Monkey in the courtyard of Cragside

Near Rothbury is the Cragside Estate, where the first Lord Armstrong built himself a residence that's half house and half castle.. This was the first house in Britain to have electric lighting, though Armstrong did have to build his own hydro-electric plant to get the power.

The Cragside Estate is run by the National Trust.
