Tweedmouth Castle (Berwick upon Tweed)
Knowe Head may have been the site of Tweedmouth Castle. It was built by King John of England and demolished by his rival King William of Scotland of Scotland in 1208 or 1209. It was agreed that the castle would not be rebuilt, but in 1215 the Scottish attacked England and the English replied by burning down Berwick and rebuilding the castle. However, the Scottish finally destroyed it for the last time. No remains can be seen at the site now.
