Looking down Marygate to the Guildhall in Berwick-upon-Tweed (the northernmost town in England), Northumberland, England.
Built in the 1750s, the Guildhall is possibly the town’s most handsome building, facing and dominating broad Marygate. Of rich brown stone in a Classical design, it has a grand portico with giant Tuscan columns and a tall spire.
The bells ring for Holy Trinity Church as well as the curfew. The top floor used to be a jail and prisoners were aired on the balcony round the roof.
The restoration of the hall reinstated the buttermarket in the colonnaded rear ground floor and brought in a coffee-bar and small shop.
