Riverside Living in Berwick Upon Tweed
Heritage Quay is a rare opportunity to acquire a new home on the Tweed waterfront in Berwick, where Northern Heritage is creating a range of two and three bedroom apartments and a handful of townhouses. Heritage Quay is gated, and the exterior style is perfectly in keeping with the traditional stone buildings of this richly historic area.
Many of the homes at Heritage Quay have balconies, allowing you the privilege of expansive views from the south side of the Tweed towards Berwick. You'll be able to see the impressive old town walls which were begun in 1558 and completed in the reign of Elizabeth 1, and still form an almost unbroken ring around the centre.
Berwick has always had to take care of its defences. It's position on the Tweed meant it was a frontier town, frequently fought over by England and Scotland.
Up to 1482 it changed hands fourteen times, and even in Victorian times still had special status as being not quite English and not quite Scottish. The duality continues: it is the only English town to have a football team in the Scottish League. The tweed itself, however, is officially Scottish.
