Archive 2018: Elizabethan Berwick

2018 Venue 9   

A walk with historian Catherine Kent

Meet at the Parade Carpark, opposite Walkergate

Sunday 15:00 (1 hour) Booking required - see page 2

This walk uses streets shown in the Elizabethan map 'The true description of her Maiestes town of Barwick'. The walk follows on from a talk in the Guildhall at 14:00, but can also be enjoyed on its own. We look at some of the sites on the map, linking them with their Elizabethan owners and tenants and finding out more about life in the town in Elizabethan times. The walk ends at the Main Guard which has an exhibition about the map.
