Join Dr Elisabeth Wilson on a walk around some of the places mentioned by her father, Jock Richardson in his memoir of growing up in Berwick in the 1920s and 1930s.

Based on Elisabeth’s research for editing and publishing the memoirs of her father – A Berwick Boyhood – she will take people around parts of Berwick mentioned, telling stories of her own family and also the social history of the time. The late 1920s and 1930s were periods of change for Berwick, with many people moved from poor housing in the centre of town to the outskirts. What was it like to live there whilst all this was happening?

The walk starts outside the Loovre at the top of Bankhill. Look out for the Starting Point Board.
