Details

1. 840 Berwick Castle (fragments, including towers and walls and steps) NT 9953E 10/261 1.8.52. I 2. There was a fortress here in the C12, but it was often besieged, attacked and altered. In the beginning of the C17 a large town house was begun on the site, but after 1611 the castle was left to decline. A large part of the stonework was removed for building Holy Trinity Church, and later the greater part of the remains were swept away for the railway station on the site. The west curtain wall survives in part, with steep steps down to the river (end of C13), and fragments of towers of the C16. AM.
