2 Love Lane/64 West Street, 57 West Street/64-66 Bridge Street, and associated buildings on West Street, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland: History, investigation, analysis and assessment of significance

Author(s): Adam Menuge

This report presents the findings of an investigation of a group of historic buildings, listed at Grade II, which form two historically distinct properties located at the junction of Bridge St, West St, Love Lane and Bridge End, Berwick-upon-Tweed. Vacant for a considerable amount of time, they are now subject to extensive plans for redevelopment. The report was commissioned by Catherine Dewar, Principal Inspector of Historic Place, Buildings and Areas, National Conservation and Planning Department North East, English Heritage. The buildings considered here were at the time of investigation under single ownership. They are 2 Love Lane/64 West Street (and the granary building, 60 West Street, which adjoins it to the north) and 57 West Street/64-66 Bridge Street (with 51 West Street, which lies within the northern boundary of the property). Both substantial houses, they were built in the third quarter of the 18th century and both contain significant joinery and other features of the period. Later additions and improvements have left their mark, particularly to the commercial spaces made out of their ground floors; 57 West Street/64- 66 Bridge Street was latterly where the Berwick Cockle sweets were manufactured and sold.
