Elizabethan Walls Virtual Tour
Heritage Open Day: Berwick's imposing Elizabethan Walls are an icon feature of the town. Why and how were they built and by whom? This virtual walk will help answer some of these questions and many more. “I must admit the new wall is marvellous beautiful”, was an opinion voiced to Queen Elizabeth in 1568, but what did the writer go on to say? Built at a time of uncertainty, this was the most expensive project of Elizabeth’s reign. Today, a tour of these walls is the best way to see Berwick and get an overview of its past and along the way encounter conflicting consultants and medieval map making. Led by local historian, Jim Herbert, this walk gives an insight into the history of these unusual walls which encircle the town. This year enjoy this walk online and from anywhere in the world.
