The sundial, Dial Cottage, West Moor
For 18 years between 1804 and 1822 Dial Cottage NZ2770 : Dial Cottage, West Moor was the home of George Stephenson and his son Robert.

They made the sundial above the front door in 1816, and from which the cottage takes its name.

George began building steam locomotives in a colliery workshop behind the cottage. In 1814 he tested his first engine 'Blucher' along the nearby Killingworth Waggonway NZ2870 : Killingworth Waggonway. As many as 16 locomotives may have been built in the workshop.
