The Burr Library

The Burr Film Library contains stories made in and around Berwick

Local matters, day-to-day experiences, learning from the past and present, thinking of the future. Berwick residents & visitors can look through the menu and watch on demand while having a chat with volunteers. Have a cup of tea, and a giff-gaff!
