The South Prospect of Berwick-upon-Tweed

This film explores one of the best known antiquarian views of Berwick which was published in 1745 by the Yorkshire brothers Nathaniel and Samuel Buck. 

Narrated by Jackie Kaines-Lang, the film examines how it was created and asks how accurate it is before looking at some of the obvious, and not so obvious details that tell us a little about Georgian Berwick. This is a great introduction to how Berwick looked in the mid 18th century.

This video will be available to view from 00:00 on 9th until 198h September 2022
