Dewars Lane Granary

The most northerly industrial railway in England - and one of the shortest - the 19th century Dewar's Lane Granary Railway at Berwick linked the granary with the quayside, via a hole cut through the quay wall. Sacks of grain were loaded onto trucks here and manually propelled to waiting vessels. Little remains of the railway, other than the hole in the wall, although the route is shown with a short history nearby. View out towards the quay on 9 October from the yard of the refurbished granary, now a youth hostel, coffee shop etc.
