Berwick-upon-Tweed is now England’s most northerly town, but over the centuries it has been changed hands between Scotland and England at least 13 times.
Today’s peaceful, unspoiled landscapes and heritage coastline produce a wide variety of food and drink ranging from crabs, lobsters and oysters to artisan breads baked in a wood-fired oven, farmhouse cheeses and ice-cream to honey from hives set in the fields and hills on either side of the English-Scottish Border.
The town itself is full of reminders of its food-producing heritage - old salmon fishing shiels and ice-houses, herring yards and smokehouses, breweries, granaries and maltings.
Within a 30 minute drive you will find picturesque fishing harbours, a traditional smokehouse and Northumberland’s only working water-powered corn-mill.
Explore these pages and find out about the variety of food and drink produced within a 25 km (approximately 15.5 miles) radius of the mouth of the River Tweed, today and in the past.
