Cherryburn is a cottage in Mickley, Northumberland, England, which was the birthplace of Thomas Bewick, an English wood engraver and ornithologist. It was acquired by the National Trust in 1991 and is now open to the public.
I called in on my Ovingham to Bywell walk, which was part 5 of my Walking the River Tyne Westwards Project, and it was shut for the day so I was restricted to photos of the outside. One day I will make it back for a proper visit.

- Discovering Bewick. The Discovering Bewick project aims to make accessible works by the eighteenth century wood-engraver Thomas Bewick which are held in collections at the Laing Art Gallery and City Library (Pease Collection) in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. This representative selection shows images which maybe familiar as well as others that have never been displayed before now. All the examples are original (not reproduced) works by Thomas Bewick or his apprentices. They include paintings, drawings, woodblocks, copperplates and the exquisite wood-engravings which made Thomas Bewick a celebrity in his own lifetime.
