Village of Bondington (Berwick upon Tweed)

This is the probable site of the medieval village of Bondington. It is first mentioned in a charter written between 1128 and 1153, but it was older than this as it had an Anglo-Saxon (410 to 1066) name. There are no written references to the village after about 1333, so it probably disappeared in the 14th century. The village probably extended from the old Scotchgate along Castle Terrace.
