Breakwater helping to protect Berwick harbour. Old and new bridges beyond.
Berwick Bridge
The present bridge dates from 1624 and is the fourth to have stood on this location. Two of the previous structures were destroyed by flooding and one by an English attack. The bridge is 355 metres long and was the original route of the A1, before the construction of the Royal Tweed Bridge in the 1920s. The bridge is a Grade I listed structure. LinkExternal link
Royal Tweed Bridge
Built in the 1920s to divert traffic off the older Berwick Bridge across the River Tweed. It is a reinforced concrete bridge. Until the bypass was built in the 1980s it carried the A1. Grade II* listed. LinkExternal link
