Berwick-upon-Tweed may not technically be in Scotland, but it has played an integral part in the country’s history. Being the northern most town in England, this Northumberland border town was subjected to a tug of war between the English and the Scots for several hundred years during their time of conflict. Due to its strategic position, both countries were eager to lay claim to Berwick and the town changed hands many times before finally becoming a permanent part of England in 1482.
Berwick’s architectural features are symbolic of the town’s former strategic importance, from its magnificent Medieval walls to its Elizabethan ramparts. Berwick’s motte and bailey castle underwent many alterations over the years depending on whether it was under Scottish or English rule. It was first built in the 12th Century by King David I of Scotland, before being rebuilt by English King Edward I and later fortified further under Queen Elizabeth I’s rule. The castle was unfortunately almost completely demolished in the 19th Century to make way for Berwick’s railway station and today its ruins are maintained by English Heritage.
