1. The Guildhall: Bell, Cells and Grandeur
Berwick’s impressive Town Hall was built by the Guild of Berwick in 1754. The bells in its imposing spire are still rung regularly: it’s no wonder visitors mistake this building for the Parish Church!
2. The Parish Centre
Nestled next to the only Cromwellian church still in use, this location is also a stone’s throw from the Barracks. Designed in the early 18th century by the distinguished architect Nicholas Hawksmoor, the Barracks the first in England to be purpose-built.
8. YHA The Granary
The John Dewar’s Granary was built in 1769 and recalls the town’s 18th and 19th century grain trade. Heavily damaged in a fire in 1815, the granary developed a lean (famously painted by L. S. Lowry). Later restored, the Granary remained in use until the 1980’s. Today it houses the YHA.
9. Berwick United Reformed Church (St. Pauls), Spittal
A short walk across the early 17th century ‘Old Bridge’ brings us to Tweedmouth and Spittal, where we find St. Paul’s on Spittal’s wide Main Street. Built in 1754 as a Presbyterian chapel, it was rebuilt in 1878 as a United Reformed Church.
10. Martin’s the Printers
Martin’s the Printers is an independent family owned book printers, with a history dating back to 1892. It is located, as our address (Sea View Works) suggests, next to the sea with clean white sands only 30 metres away, and views down the coast to Lindisfarne.
