Product Description:

Berwick-upon-Tweed is a town in the county of Northumberland. It is the northernmost town in England, on the east coast at the mouth of the River Tweed, and situated 2.5 miles (4 km) south of the Scottish border.

During the half-term holidays in October 2007, my family and I went north to Scotland. After breaking our journey with a night in a campsite on Hadrian's Wall (in a cabin...not a tent...too cold in October!) we continued to our holiday let near Duns, just over the Scottish border. The nearest "big shops" were in Berwick-Upon-Tweed, so we had the odd experience (very exciting for the children!) of staying in one country and shopping in another. Okay, it thrilled me each border crossing too...

One visit to Berwick saw us walk right around the town walls, taking in the glorious views, including the bridges. I love this photo - the main bridge in the foreground, easy to spot, and then you notice the second bridge way in the distance!
