Riverside Walls

Originally part of the defences commenced by Edward 1 after he stormed Berwick in 1296, this section of wall was probably not built until the early 14th century. In this film, local historian Jim Herbert, will unravel the story, and explain the changes that took place during the 400 years after the original construction and show something of the interiors of two remaining towers.
