Berwick Ramparts :: Shared Description

This is the complete listing text from English Heritage, which sums it up better than I can.
"One of the best examples in Europe of a fortified town. Medieval walls were begun by Edward I and surrounded the town, with the Castle at their North West corner. Their course is traceable, and fragments remain in the Bell Tower (base) and walling on the North side. The Elizabethan fortifications are unique in Britain, begun circa 1555 and built to the latest Italian designs. In the 1760's the medieval walls were rebuilt with gun batteries, and Coxon's Tower was rebuilt. The gates include Scotsgate (altered 1815 and 1858), Cowport (probably 1590's with C18 timber doors), Ness Gate (1816), Shore Gate (1760's with original timber doors). Scheduled AM."
