The former Cowe buildings on West Street, Berwick.

The Grade II listed buildings, located on Bridge Street, Love Lane and West Street, are an important part of Berwick’s architectural, historic, cultural and commercial heritage. The properties, owned for generations by the Cowe family, include the original Berwick Cockle Shop as well as the premises of the wholesale business, which both closed in 2010.
