Haughton Castle, Hexham, photographed at the turn of the century by the American photographer Catharine Ward Weed. This was the second home in which George Crawshay built himself a Turkish bath in an adjacent building. It seems likely that it was the one in which his cousin Robert took the three Ambrotypes (now in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London) which show two bathers within the bath.
