I had the pleasure of meeting up with fellow Flickr member Stuart Warr on this day and we visited Tondu where I took some images of my Cocker Spaniel Rosie and Stuart's Minature Schnauzer Eddi.

The only other National Trust property I have visited that is on a par with Cragside House in Northumberland is Lanhydrock House, near Bodmin in Cornwall.
Cragside was once the home of William Armstrong, 1st Baron Armstrong, born 1810 in Newcastle upon Tyne, and founder of the Armstrong Whitworth armaments firm.
This fella was an industrial magnate, a scientist, philanthropist and inventor of the hydraulic crane.
He made Cragside the very first house in the world to be lit using hydroelectric power.
I understand that it is one of the most-visited sites in North East England, attracting some 255,005 visitors in pre-pandemic 2019.
Pevsner's 'Architectural Guide for Northumberland' described it as "the most dramatic Victorian mansion in the North of England".
If you never visited, you've got to add it to your 'bucket list'.
