Many houses have
changed over the years, the oldest date from the 16th century, and most have
been extended and changed, and cottages have been knocked down and rebuilt -
sometimes several times on the same site.
Have a look at the
Historical Pictures and see how windows have changed - the dormers in The Clock
House and Goodwins House - and when the thatch changed to
There are now about
70 houses in Berwick, that number probably hasn't changed much over 300 years,
but houses built now are much larger and usually detached.
Some houses are
listed here as individual properties, others are grouped together depending on
their history. Modern houses have usually been built on land belonging to the
nearest old property, and are therefore included with that house. For example
"Berwick House" includes Rivermead. "Late Powell's" includes 1,2 and 3 The Row,
Berwick Farm Shop and Cherry Trees.
I haven't completed
the jigsaw for every house - so some are missing from this website. I am working
on them, and will update as often as possible.
