Monument to Philip Maclagan - Classical Statue

Standing outside of Berwick upon Tweed Infirmary is the Grade II Listed memorial to Dr Philip Whiteside Maclagan (1818-92).

Born in Edinburgh, the second son of an army surgeon, P.W. Maclagan followed the family tradition and trained at Edinburgh University before serving as an Army surgeon with the Royal Canadian Regiment (1841-1853).

During this period he collected plants in Canada and the United States. He returned to Britain and befriended the naturalist Dr George Johnston of Berwick and married (1847) his daughter Margaret Johnston (c. 1813-1887).

Maclagan joined his father-in-law's practice (1853) and inherited it on Johnston's death. He built up the practice, later joined by his son Charles, and became an elder and lay preacher at the Wallace Green Presbyterian Church and trustee of the British School.

A monument commemorating his life was erected initially on the High Street where it served as a drinking fountain, but later moved outside Berwick Infirmary. The statue is of Hygeia (goddess of health) The bronze tablet shows a relief portrait of Maclagan in profile facing right. Hygeia is characteristically posed holding a saucer in her right hand with water for a serpent which is wound around a column at her side.

The sculptor was D.W.S. Stevenson of Edinburgh.

New parking improvements in Berwick

Press release from Northumberland County Council @ http://www.northumberland.gov.uk/New...n-Berwick.aspx
New parking improvements in Berwick
20 Jul 2018

More than 20 new car parking spaces have been created in Berwick ahead of the main tourist season.

Work is now complete on a new 15 space car park in Chapel Street, replacing a coach park which never proved popular. A further six parking spaces have been created on the street outside. The car park includes a disabled space and two electric vehicle spaces, with an electric charging point in the process of being installed. It is a short-stay car park, allowing two hours parking.

The conversion work has seen the electronic bollards removed and will be reused, the entrance and exit to the park redesigned and the area resurfaced and relined.

Long-stay coach parking facility is now available at the Swan Centre, with short stay available on Walkergate, primarily aimed at coaches which would be looking to stop in the town for shorter periods.

Councillor Glen Sanderson, Cabinet member for Environment and Local Services, said: “We know parking remains an issue in the town as it is in many areas, and this new car park forms part of our comprehensive parking plan for Berwick. In addition to these much needed new spaces for cars we have also provided places for coaches to park which will ensure that tourists and residents will equally benefit. It’s important the right infrastructure is in place for both cars and coaches in a popular tourist destination like Berwick and I’m delighted we’ve been able to get the new parking spaces in for the summer holiday season.”

Councillor Catherine Seymour, Berwick North added: “The Chapel Street Car Park has opened at last in Berwick! Its former life as a coach park was unsuccessful. Passengers were not able to get on or off coaches in situ. There were no facilities and many other complaints including environmental issues. It has been a bone of contention before and since its inception, when it eliminated short term car parking for the library, social services and shoppers for the town centre. Although there are many parking restraints in our heritage market town, provision has been made for short and long term parking for coaches. The Chapel Street Car Park has been restored to a better state than formally with upgrades for the benefit of the public.”

‘Massive’ leap forward for new Berwick hospital

Press release from Northumberland County Council @ http://www.northumberland.gov.uk/New...-hospital.aspx
‘Massive’ leap forward for new Berwick hospital
17 Aug 2018

Health leaders in Northumberland have approved plans for a new state-of-the-art hospital for Berwick.

The move, described as a ‘huge leap forward’, has been approved by the leadership of Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and NHS Northumberland Clinical Commissioning Group (the CCG) in their individual board meetings, which took place at the end of last month.

The development of a new integrated health, social care and leisure facility requires further approval from Northumberland County Council, however all organisations are positive that plans continue to be driven forward that will see Berwick leading the way in the provision of integrated health and well-being services.

County Council Leader Peter Jackson said: “We’re delighted there’s been significant progress in this flagship project for Berwick and Northumberland.
Understandably, there has been a lot of local frustration due to historic delays in progressing with the new Berwick Hospital, but a lot of work has been going on behind the scenes over recent months. The link between health and wellbeing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is well established and the possibility of combining health and leisure services in one area through this partnership is an exciting prospect.”

If approved at the Council’s Cabinet next month, the plans will see an innovative new joint hospital and leisure facility on the Swan Centre site in Berwick – which will bring significant investment into the town.

“It’s absolutely fantastic to be at this stage,” said Northumbria Healthcare chief executive Jim Mackey. It has been a long, at times frustrating, road but I can honestly say that we have arrived at the right place. These plans will incorporate existing services currently provided within the Berwick Infirmary in a modern, purpose built facility.

“Co-locating leisure and health is a natural step and will make it much easier for our nurses, therapists and doctors to link in with exercise facilities which are critical to healthy living,” Similar models have been successful elsewhere – including within the North East –which will mean that the new facility serves the whole community for years to come,” continued Jim.

The co-location of a new hospital and new leisure site represents the best in modern medical thinking – with an emphasis not just on treating sickness or injury but in preventing them in the first place.

Janet Guy, chair of NHS Northumberland CCG said: “We know people in Berwick are keen to see improved services locally and we are keen to be able to take this further forward. The integration of health services and their co-location with a leisure facility reflects the very latest thinking in how to deliver world class care.

“Nationally and locally there is now a much greater focus on patients spending less time in hospital and being supported in the community, where it is safe to do so. The new hospital will include inpatient beds, a range of other hospital services, possibly GP services as well as community health and social care staff and leisure facilities. We remain absolutely committed to ensuring this development will be fit for the future and we will continue to work with the local community to ensure it meets their needs.”

Union Chain Bridge closure for further National Lottery bid works


© https://www.flickr.com/photos/steve-ellwood/

Press release from Northumberland County Council @ http://www.northumberland.gov.uk/New...tional-Lo.aspx
Union Chain Bridge closure for further National Lottery bid works
28 Aug 2018

A ten week series of closures of the iconic Union Chain Bridge will be taking place as further progress is made on the second round National Lottery bid.

The closure, which will be intermittent, begins on Monday 10 September and runs from 9am to 5pm, with the bridge open at weekends. Pedestrians and cyclists will continue to be able to use the bridge but may face short delays at times until it is safe to cross.

In order to minimise the impact for local residents and nearby visitor attractions, and because of the nature of the works, there may be periods during this time when the road is open to all traffic and diversion and advance warning signs will notify drivers of this happening.

A fully signed diversion route will be in place for the duration of the closure, which will allow the development activities to support the second round bid to take place, including a masonry inspection, investigation of the existing paintwork, strain gauge monitoring and handrail works.

The works are required as part of an ambitious project to conserve the historic bridge, which is currently in a one year development phase after initial support for National Lottery funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) was approved in March 2018, securing a £360,000 development grant. It meant the £7.3million project could be progressed further, ahead of a second round submission.

The bid focuses on conserving and raising awareness of the internationally significant bridge, which celebrates its 200th birthday in 2020.

Scottish Borders Council, Northumberland County Council, community group the Friends of the Union Chain Bridge and Museums Northumberland – formerly known as the Woodhorn Charitable Trust - are working together on the scheme.

Built by Captain Samuel Brown in 1820, the Union Chain Bridge is currently the oldest operational suspension bridge in the world still carrying vehicles, and through securing National Lottery support, it is anticipated that the bridge project can also deliver numerous cultural, heritage, educational and community benefits.

A spokesperson for the partners of the Union Chain Bridge project said: “We realise this is a lengthy daytime closure but it is absolutely essential as part of the second round bid to the National Lottery to help us determine the condition of the bridge.

“Alongside conserving and promoting the Union Chain Bridge, our project also aims to raise the profile of nearby attractions, providing learning opportunities for young people inspired by the bridge’s innovative engineering, and developing meaningful cross-border heritage projects and partnerships. We hope local people understand the need to closure the road to vehicles during weekdays, with the bridge fully open to all at weekends and still open Monday to Friday for walkers, cyclists and horse riders.”

The Union Chain Bridge project also aims to use the structure and its conservation to develop educational resources and case study materials for the teaching of science, technology, engineering and maths subjects from primary schools up to postgraduate level.

This would aim to inspire a new generation to choose careers in science and engineering and to follow in the footsteps of Captain Samuel Brown.

The Brown Bear Inn, Berwick upon Tweed

The Brown Bear Inn at 27-29 Hide Hill, Berwick upon Tweed, photographed 22nd May 2018.

The recent history of the pub is shown on their web site @ http://www.berwickbrownbear.co.uk/the-project/

Quote:
The Brown Bear Inn; literally, is Berwick-upon-Tweed’s most iconic pub – the town’s coat of arms is a brown bear. The pub has a great reputation that stretches back decades, but in the last twenty years it suffered a chronic lack of investment in the hands of a tied pub company.

They closed it in early 2016 and put it on the market.

It was bought at auction in July 2016 by one Frank Flannigan, a local businessman who wanted to protect the pub and make sure it couldn’t be changed into alternative use and lost forever under Berwick’s nose…

Today a group of local people are determined to revive the pub as an attractive, welcoming, vibrant social enterprise, that’s More Than A Pub and to do a Berwick wide consultation exercise to help shape and decide what the Brown Bears future will be.

This project went live on October 1st 2016 and the pub will be open for business on Thursday 1st December 2016. There is a lot to do and we’re going to do most of this with volunteers.

We’re inviting input from everyone who is interested in keeping pubs vibrant and relevant to society for future generations.

Currently there are four unpaid directors planning the project. By the time you’re reading this the website will have been up too; which was also designed over the course of a week and donated.

On this site you can find our Partners & Supporters page with everyone who has donated, gifted, grafted and contributed listed there.


Evidence that pub was once a Vaux House:
