2019 Berwick venues and events – 13

Tower Tour (Walk)

Venue 22

Originally part of the defences commenced by Edward I after he stormed Berwick in 1296, this section of wall was probably not built until the early 14th century and has seen many modifications since. During this short tour, local historian Jim Herbert will unravel the story and will take visitors into one of the more prominent features, Coxon's Tower, which underwent two major modifications since it was originally built. A much less obvious tower that visitors will be led into is the New Tower, which many people do not know even exists!
Saturday 10:30 and 12:00
(about one hour) (booking required)
Meet at the Ness Gate beside Cleet Court.
