caught the train from Kings Cross to Berwick on the 2nd may to visit my friend there for 7 days. Arrived at 2.30 so had plenty of time for a walk. After dumping my bags and taking a picture of the view from her backdoor we set off for a walk around the ancient walls. Berwick is the northernmost town in England and is steeped in history. I absolutely loved it and all itsd narrow winding streets and the history of the town. Some of the photo's are taken with my Fuji and some with my canon.

road through an opening in the walls. Note Australians no road rage here, everyone gives way to everyone else on the many narrow and winding streets and roads.
part of the walls where we began our walk. It is called walls even though there appears to be only one as I was smartly told when I called it a wall.
