Wylam Library, Falcon Terrace
Also known as the Falcon Centre. Wylam Railway Museum was opened in part of this former school building in 1981, the bicentenary of the birth of George Stephenson, to commemorate Wylam’s unique contribution to railway history. There are displays on the famous local railway pioneers, George Stephenson ('the Father of the Railways'), William Hedley (manager of the Wylam Colliery and designer of the historic locomotives, Puffing Billy and Wylam Dilly), Timothy Hackworth (colliery blacksmith) and Nicholas Wood (colliery and early railway engineer).
