England's northernmost city is a salt-encrusted fortress with a history of conflict: it changed hands 14 times between the Scots and the English between 1174 and 1482, which has resulted in a strong local identity. Locals speak English with a noticeable Scottish burr and its football team, Berwick Rangers, are the only English team to play in the Scottish leagues.
