Just that! I also liked the fact that it was well annotated, including explaining how Lowry spent time in Berwick.

The walk is something everyone should undertake if you are visiting Berwick. If you do not know Berwick has changed hands between the English and the Scottish 13 times in history. Your first stop should be the barracks. Until 1964 the barracks were in use. This was the first purpose built barracks in England in 1717. You will continue down through some beautiful country lanes and come to Constables Tower, this was named Constable after the person responsible for the castle in the absence of the lord. You will go to Megs Mount a bastion protecting the Southwest corner of the town. You will cross the bridge over the river. Coxon's Tower was originally a tall round medieval tower. Carrying on you will visit King's Mount and The Magazine, It is also wise to know that this is an undulating walk, although in positions there are seats, you need to be fit to do this. I don't think this walk is suitable for wheel chairs, although some parts are. To get onto the Quay Walls there are steps.

This is worth a walk if only for the views all around.
I felt that the Park needed a little tender loving care.
