23/283 Chimney on west
side of B6341,
100 metres north-
north-west of
Cragside Park House

Chimney. Third quarter of C19, for Lord Armstrong. Cut stone, with yellow
brick furnace arch. Square base with moulded corners and furnace arch to
south-east, carrying circular shaft with moulded top. Overall height c.7

This chimney, along with a second (q.v.) further up 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 beneath the conservatory.
