Projects

Streetscape: an opportunity to record Berwickshire's historic roadside heritage at the start of the 21st century.

 

The Berwickshire Civic Society's Streetscape Project, perhaps rather ambitiously, aims to identify and record architectural and heritage features along the hundreds of miles of public roads throughout the old County of Berwickshire. Over the next few years we hope to cover every mile, along both rural roads and the routes through our towns and villages, identifying and recording our roadside heritage throughout the county.

 

The Society's research suggests that Berwickshire's roadsides contain far more features than we would expect. Berwickshire's roadsides are thick with architectural heritage, but too little of it is recorded. Now we so often pass at speed, we probably see just a little of what is there. Do we notice the milestones, the roadside monuments or the detail of the hundreds of bridges that carry our roads? Much is often hidden by vegetation, or, as with our bridges, their real charm and character can only be appreciated by stepping off the road.  If you would like to find out more about the project or volunteer to help record our roadside heritage please contact Judy Torrance, Honorary Secretary enquiries@berwickshirecivicsociety.co.uk

 

KEEP BERWICKSHIRE TIDY AWARDS 2014:  The Society has been running the awards for over 30 years.  The aim of the awards is to encourage local communities to take pride in their local environment and protect and enhance their communities.  This year we had very close marking for the awards but are delighted to announce that the 2014 winner is Coldstream.  Westruther and Gordon were a close second and joint third was Coldingham and Duns.
