Many wars have been fought over the border of Berwick-upon-tween between the English and the Scottish as it is the most northern country in England and a prime location for both countries in days of old. The last war won was by the English in 1482 and hence why it has remained part of the country ever since. As one might expect, a lot of the architecture has been shaped by its military past. There are defence ramparts and barracks scattered around the village. In terms of transport the village is located on the A1 and train services run to Edinburgh, 55 miles away. Despite being part of England its football team, Berwick Rangers F.C plays in the Scottish 3rd division.
