I had never been to Berwick-upon-Tweed before we moved to Northumberland, but it has quickly become one of my favourite places to visit.

It is just south of the English/Scottish border, and its layout and architecture, featuring town walls, ramparts, and barracks buildings. reflect the troubled history of the two kingdoms,

On a less martial note, it also has a thriving arts centre, some very pretty streets, and stunning views out across the sea to Holy Island, or Lindisfarne.

This photograph, shows the 17th century Berwick Bridge, or Old Bridge, one of the three bridges which cross the River Tweed at Berwick. It is my response to the Weekly Photo Challenge, which is, as you may have gathered, “bridge”.
