Riverside Walls Tour

Cleet Court, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland, TD15 1HH

Originally part of the defences commenced by Edward I after he stormed Berwick in 1296, this section of the wall was probably not built until the early 14th century.

In this walking tour, local historian, Jim Herbert, will unravel the story and explain the changes that took place during the 400 years after the original construction. There's also a chance to see inside two of the remaining towers. - Coxon's and New Tower.
