Exploring Berwick // The Barracks pt.2
Not last month but the month before, I published the first post from this day out, which was actually back in May when Kerri came to visit, and this is the other part of our day exploring Berwick Army Barracks. That first post has a lot more information on the history of the Barracks itself as well as the photos from the military museums. Now we enter the 'Berwick Museum & Art Gallery' which shows some of our town's amazing history...
As you first go into this building, turn to the right. You'll be met by (almost) everything to do with Berwick from 'ye olde days', all in one room. It's crazy! There's cobbled streets, windows of homes and shops to peek in and even the iconic birds of our seaside town. I actually remember this from when I was a child but it was fun to explore again and spot things I hadn't the first time.
See that cycle race game? It actually worked and so Kerri and I got a little bit competitive which was fun - here's a little video I tried to get one handed haha.
Not a one for modern art, I kind of skipped over the art gallery and headed upstairs for some more Berwick history. ''Be transported back to the turbulent Middle Ages and find out about the weaponry and fortifications of this strategic border town'', so says the official website.
As you can tell from the photos, I don't think we did much learning. But we had some fun for sure. It made it a lot better that we were the only ones there too.
That's about it, there isn't much else to say, but if you do visit Berwick please pay our beautiful army Barracks a visit. If you have already, what did you think?
