The main use of the building seems to have been a Court, although it was also used as a prison and also used as a Met or office for weights and measures.

Three Bridges.

Berwick -upon-Tweed….. is a town in the county of Northumberland. It is the northernmost town in England, at the mouth of the river Tweed on the East Coast, 2 and half miles south of Scottish border and is approximately 56 miles south east of Edinburgh.

In the 2011 UK Census, the recorded population of Berwick was 12,043. A civil parish and town council were created in 2008 comprising the communities of Berwick, Spittal & Tweedmouth.

There are 4 Bridges that span River Tweed at Berwick – The Royal Border Bridge – Berwick bridge- Union Bridge – Royal Tweed Bridge.

Berwick is popular shopping destination for both locals and visitors alike.

The Ramparts – the town of Berwick suffered centuries of conflict, as control of the town passed back and forward between England and Scotland until late 17th Century.

Each crisis brought repairs and improvements to the fortifications, culminating in the great artillary ramparts which began in 1558 , these survive largely intact and makes Berwick one of the most important fortified towns of Europe.

Moment of peace ……

Berwick to be continued……..
