The Lowry Trail

Follow in the footsteps of L.S. Lowry on The Lowry Trail

If you would like to take a town trail round Berwick, Tweedmouth and Spittal, you can follow in the footsteps of Manchester artist L.S.Lowry on The Lowry Trail. Lowry, famous for his matchstick-men paintings, used to holiday frequently in Berwick-upon-Tweed and as a result he made more than thirty sketches, drawings and paintings while visiting the area. The Lowry Trail is made up of 18 interpretation panels on both sides of the River Tweed, and has an accompanying leaflet available from Berwick Tourist Information Centre.

There is a new Berwick walk which has been launched by the Royal Geographical Society as part of the 'Discovering Britain' series. The walks are free, fun, easy to do and come complete with a map, and a choice of an audio or written commentary of the places of interest along the walks. Everything that is needed to enjoy the Berwick walk can be downloaded from the Discovering Britain website.
