Heritage survey in Berwick, Spittal, and Tweedmouth

A survey of all the buildings within the Conservation Areas of Berwick, Spittal, and Tweedmouth is being organised, under the auspices of Northumberland County Council, to commence at the end of October 2022, and volunteers are being sought to help with the work.  An outline of the scheme and the recruitment plans is given below.


Are you interested in the built heritage of the area, do you live, work or spend time in Berwick-upon-Tweed, Spittal or Tweedmouth? Then come and volunteer on our community heritage survey.

Together we will be looking at all the buildings and streets of our 3 local Conservation Areas.  Learn about the buildings we know and love, and help us find new hidden gems!


What is the project about?

Northumberland County Council is preparing a Management Plan for the three Conservation Areas, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Spittal and Tweedmouth.

We are currently recruiting volunteers who will all receive free training and support through a mentoring volunteer programme to help us survey these areas. Your time and interest as a volunteer will help to provide up to date information, identifying and exploring these areas.

The project is funded by Historic England and delivered by Northumberland County Council, supported by Berwick Conservation Area Advisory Group.

How to get involved:

To find out more, join us online at 7:00pm on Thursday 20th October 2022 for an introduction to the project.  Come and be inspired to join our volunteer team.
