The 405th staging of the Riding of the Bounds in Berwick takes place next Thursday, May 1.

Around 50 horses and riders led by chief marshal Ed Swales are expected to tackle the traditional 15-mile route to check the security of the boundaries of the town.

The riders will gather at Berwick Barracks, leaving for Marygate at 10.30am and departing from the town hall at 11am after receiving permission from the mayor.

Trotting races are planned at Gainslaw Hill, weather permitting, with riders expected back in the town centre around 3.15pm.
