Walking the wall of Berwick 3


Ah, now is that a look-out post we see in front -shall we go and see?
but before we do just look to the right -




Here we see the Tweed Mouth Beach, just look at all those swans, I reckon they are so graceful, dont you?
Ok, take a deep breath --



.Just look - all these steps,lol and notice 
how worn they look, how many Soldiers have marched up and down these
to defend Berwick.




Here's the info for the Look-out.
Click the pic to enlarge for you to read.

To be continued.

Lovely! I enjoyed this post very much. Thanks for the great historical tour. I enjoyed reading the marker. Noticed the name "Bulwark". Years ago when Gregg was on his exchange tour with the RN, for a little while he was on a ship called HMS Bulwark.

That is a beautiful area - no wonder it had to be defended. I hope you wore your Tweed coat!

I think I'm really going to enjoy our walk along the wall, even with the steps. I certainly enjoyed seeing all those swans.

It looks a bit bleak and I bet the wind was blowing on the way up to the top of those steps.

Gosh, I'm lucky if I catch a glimpse of a swan or two around here. You gots lots of 'em! What a pretty area!
