The Parish Church of Holy Trinity and St Mary

Berwick Parish Church, The Parade, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland, TD15 1DF

This church is a building of exceptional historic importance, a very rare example of an Anglican church built in the Commonwealth period.

When George Fenwick was Governor of Berwick in the 17th century, funds were raised to build the church using stone and timber from the disused Castle. It was completed in 1652. It was designed and built as a Puritan place of worship consisting of a regular nave with 2 side aisles and no chancel. It has no tower or steeple, reputedly at the express orders of Oliver Cromwell.
