Day 173 : Berwick-on-Tweed – Belford

I was never quite sure whether Berwick was in Scotland or England for it has changed hands several times in its history. The border is actually a couple of miles north of the town. The walled town lies on the north side of the River Tweed and has three bridges over the river. The impressive railway viaduct, an old stone bridge that now carries traffic one way from north to south and the newer bridge that carries the main traffic through the town.
