Berwick Castle Curtain Wall

Part of the Curtain wall of Berwick Castle, and the river path tunnel.

More info HERE..

The White Wall.

If you were a Scot or a Brit (depending on who owned the Castle at the time)
How do you fancy running up these steps to defend??

Pity you - if you were a tall chap - defending the castle from this point.
Stiff legs after a while I'm bound.

After 10 minutes I was glad to get out of here - Let along hours-days-weeks?? defending.

This is the river path tunnel - from one side of the White Wall to the other.
Scotland to England.
So easy now-a-days, ---
The Boarder is now a few miles north from here.

Berwick - to be continued.

How interesting, Stewart... BUT--I'm not sure I'd enjoy running up and down those steps!!!! ha

I'd love to see the Berwick Castle....Thanks for sharing.

Have a nice weekend.

These are wonderful pictures of this wall. I definitely would not like to run up those stairs nor would I want to spend much time in the sally port. Thanks for taking us to this fascinating place.

Don't think the castle is a place for slightly chubby chaps who like their beer!

Very interesting story ! I always love to read about old castles. It's amazing that there are still "left overs" after so many years !

Great shots of a very interesting place with loads of history in every stone. I think the castles were regarded as "safe havens" than convenient places to live and work even back in those days.
