WILLIAM ARMSTRONG

 

WILLIAM ARMSTRONG

 

FOLLOWING THE RESEARCH OF WILLIAM ARMSTRONG IN THE PAST, HE HAS A RICH HISTORY RELATED TO HYDRO GENERATION, ARMAMENTS, WARSHIPS, WROUGHT IRON AND LANDHOLDING. THERE ARE MANY ESTATES BELONG TO ARMSTRONG IN HE ROTHBURY AND BUILT THE FIRST HYDRO GENERATION HOUSE OF THE WORLD IN THE CRAGSIDE WHICH IS CURRENTLY HOLD  BY THE NATIONAL TRUST.

THE CULTURE OF WILLIAM ARMSTRONG HERITAGES ATTRACTED THOUSANDS OF TOURISTS COME INTO THE RUTHBURY. HOWEVER, SOME HERITAGES OF ARMSTRONG HAVE DISAPPEARED. AS AN EXAMPLE THE FAMOUS CRAGSIDE HAS STOPPED TO USE THE HYDRO GENERATION TO POWER THE ARC LAMP AND IT IS NOW REPLACED BY THE INCANDESCENT LAMP BY USING THE ELECTRICITY FROM LOCAL POWER STATION.

THE VISITOR CENTRE AIMS TO MAKE AN INTEGRATION OF THE CULTURE HERITAGE OF ARMSTRONG WHICH COULD SUPPORTS AN OPPORTUNITY TO INTRODUCE THE HISTORY OF ARMSTRONG WHILST AT SAME TIME THE VISITOR WILL BE ABLE TO ABTAIN A COHERENT KNOWLEDGE OF THE HYDRO POWER GENERATION. ON THE OTHER HAND, IT WILL BE A GATEWAY TO COMPREHEND AND REINTERPRET THE LIFE OF ARMSTRONG FROM HIS EARLY STAGE TO LATER LIFE BY EITHER THROUGH THE MEANS OF FILM IN THE THEATRE OR INFORMATION IN THE EXHIBITION AREA.
