From Ditch to Bastion Tour

Heritage Open Day: 'I must admit the new wall is marvellous beautiful', was an opinion voiced to Queen Elizabeth about the bastioned fortifications in 1568.... before condemning them as badly designed and a waste of money! In this, the most northerly Heritage Open Days event, Jim Herbert takes you on a journey amongst the northern mediaeval defences of Berwick that actually saw some action in the Anglo-Scottish wars and bear witness to the changes in technology from the earliest ditch defence to the 16th century bastions. The tour takes in Spades Mire, Bell Tower and Lord's Mount. Enjoy this walk this year from the comfort of your own home and any part of the world!
