#125 Go to a New City

A few months ago I decided to visit Berwick-Upon-Tweed, a beautiful market town and one which has a large and important role in the making of Scotland and England. As the northern-most town in England the town has a special feel to it and  I spent a lot of my time listening to the twangs of locals which result from this. Disappointingly or perhaps delightfully though, I was struck at the inconsistency between Scottish, Geordie and Northumbrian accents. After exploring the adorable shops and cafes I decided to visit the old jacobite church which sits on the edge of the town. Unable to enter due to a visitng orchestra I retreated to a bench outside to do some sketching. Brilliantly they strarted playing and I was caught up in a surreal merge between soundtrack and life.
