Artist's Description

The open ground of Magdalen Fields in Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland (the northernmost town in England), is protected by the Bell Tower and an earthwork traverse line, which ends with the Great Bulwark Redoubt.

The Bell Tower was built in 1577. It overlies an earlier tower on the line of the town defenses built by Edward I in 1296.

Berwick-upon-Tweed (pronunciation: berɪk), on the east coast at the mouth of the River Tweed is situated 2.5 miles (4 km) south of the Scottish border and forms part of the wider Borough of Berwick-upon-Tweed local government district.

Being central to a border war between the Kingdoms of Scotland and England since the 11th century, the town has lain within England since 1482. However, Berwick has strong cultural links with Scotland. Berwick remains, though, a traditional market town at heart. The town also boasts some notable architectural features, in particular the defence ramparts and the barrack buildings.

The Bell Tower and the Remains of the Town Walls have been classified as a Grade 1 Listed Building. LBS Number: 237361.

Camera: Canon EOS 450D.
