An Archimedean screw at Cragside
Cragside is thought to be the first house in the world to be lit by hydro-electricity, 150 years later a modern hydro-electric system is being installed.
The screw has been installed at the southern end of Tumbleton lake and will produce enough energy to light the house. It is installed at an angle that will allow water to pass between the lake and the burn below.
