Jesmond Dene

A Victorian park in a wooded valley, There is a deep ravine with picturesque planting, a waterfall and a water mill. The park was presented to the city by Lord Armstrong in 1883 as an act of philanthropy. It forms an interesting comparison with Lord Armstrong's own estate at Cragside. Victorian philanthropists liked to provide town dwellers with something of their own pleasures.
