In a promotional leaflet, Berwick U3A say: ‘Berwick already caters for history fans and a love of nature fits in well with this as the enthusiasts of history and nature often have the same type of mindset.’

It is suggested the trail would run along the New Road, including Tommy the Miller’s, the Old Bridge, along Dock Road, to Spittal Point, beach and cliffs, thus taking in several types of habitat.
