Price : £16.00

Located at the heart of the 16th century trouble dubbed the ‘rough wooing’, many of the villages featured in this book were burned to the ground by forces of Henry VIII during his attempt to force a marriage pact between Mary Queen of Scots and the young Prince Edward. The very fact that the county of Berwickshire is located in Scotland yet Berwick-on-Tweed (its old county town) has been in England for nigh on 500 years tells its own story. The pictures in this volume range in date from the late 19th to the mid-20th century and capture the undoubted charm of the area as well at its wide variety of architectural styles. From the picturesque cottages of Preston and Gavinton nestling amongst trees and rose bushes, to the elegance of Marchmont House, Manderston House and Rowchester House, to the terraced stone working-class dwellings in Duns and at Broomhill Mill, it can be said that indeed, the whole of life is here.
