157. Berwick-upon-Tweed

I went to boarding school about 4 miles from here for nine years.

The tall building is the town hall. There used to be a lovely coffee shop in the back of the town hall 30plus years ago, that sold the most wonderful chocolate gateaux. It’s still a cafe but nothing like it was. The bus station isn’t there any more (busses now run from Golden Square), and Woolies is long gone, much of the shopping area was rundown and a bit depressed. but the backstreets are just the same and it was fun to explore. (Thankful for the return of the good weather)
