Lowry Trail

L S Lowry (1887-1976) visited the town of Berwick many times from the mid-1930s until the summer before he died. The Berwick Lowry Trail identifies the sites of many of his finest paintings and drawings of the town and allows you to follow in his footsteps.

Altogether Lowry produced a fascinating group of more than thirty drawings and paintings of the Berwick area.

These successfully convey variations in the mood of Britain's most popular artist and range from familiar, busy, enclosed street and yard scenes & to composite panoramic dreamscapes; from stern symmetrical architectural compositions to joyous beach scenes &; from slight, smudged, pencil sketches of milling crowds to boldly outlined, careful drawings of derelict industrial buildings.

Berwick-upon-Tweed, in short, inspired some of L S Lowry's finest and most interesting works.

More information on the town and the trail can be found on the Visit Berwick website.
