Three years ago I started a personal project. I set out to photograph all the crossings, ancient and modern, across the River Tweed between Kelso and Berwick upon Tweed. This is the story so far – and what happens next.
This image was part of a panorama project I undertook for a client in Oldham in the UK. You can clearly see, from 40 miles away the Fiddler’s Ferry power station on the Manchester Ship Canal.
In 2016 I developed a series of images to create a panoramic view of the Square in Kelso. I felt it would be both interesting and useful to record the current state of the Square.
Maps identify over 30 river crossings on the Tweed between Kelso and Berwick in the borderland joining England and Scotland. Many, especially the fords and ferries, have now vanished. But each of them has a story to tell in the turbulent history of the region.
