Bank Hill Ice House

Bankhill Ice House, one of several known ice houses in Berwick, built in the early eighteenth century. These buildings stored ice that was used for preserving salmon sent from Berwick to London and elsewhere, on trade routes across the North Sea. Norwegian and British ships have crossed paths for over a thousand years, enabling a rich exchange of language, culture and traditions. The Bankhill Ice House was still being used in the 1930s, and was designated an air raid shelter during WW II.

Bankhill Ice House will this year house Going to the Mountain by Jenny Brady.
