Felton Park Greenhouse, Felton Park, Felton, Northumberland NE65 9HN View on map
The Grade II* greenhouse and potting shed set within the 1774 stone walled garden at Felton Park, was built about 1830. It is one of the earliest surviving buildings in the UK to use slender, curved wrought iron glazing bars and fish-scale glass; at the time a highly innovative technique. One of only a handful of comparative structures in Britain, the design follows closely the recommendation of John Claudius Loudon, the great garden designer and hothouse expert.
