The long tradition of salmon netting on the River Tweed, the one constant of Berwick’s history over the centuries, is being celebrated at an exhibition at the Watchtower Gallery,

Tweedmouth. Visitors to the ‘The Tweed & its Industries’ are greeted at the front steps by a netboat, with the net laid on ready to row the first shot. Once inside an impressive array of paintings and photographs, including the one above which was taken at the blessing of the nets in the 1930s, fills the walls.

The exhibition is open Thursday-Sunday 12pm-4pm until April 21.
