Cowe buildings work progresses
Work on the restoration of the former Cowe buildings in Berwick is well under way.
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.
Through the Berwick Townscape Heritage Initiative, Arch is carrying out essential repairs to the Love Lane building (Green) and comprehensive repair and restoration to Bridge Street and West Street (Blue), providing a space suitable for a shop or café/restaurant and four 2-bed apartments for private rent.
