There appears to be a discrepancy between the text which says the area borders England and the image where it clearly doesn't. Kurando | ^_^ 08:33, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

Half of the county does run along the River Tweed which until Berwick is the border between England and Scotland. Benson85 04:34, 2 July 2006 (UTC)

Historically inaccuracy[edit]

"the royal burgh (Berwick-upon-Tweed) changed hands in 1482 and has been part of the county of Northumberland, in England, ever since."

- Actually this is wrong. Berwick only formally became part of Northumberland in the 19th century, despite being controlled by England for far longer. In addition, it was originally by treaty between Scotland and England, part of neither (but in reality controlled by England). --MacRusgail 18:29, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

Agreed. David Lauder 21:41, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

Number of districts[edit]

The text states that there are 4 districts, but then lists only 3. Is the number wrong? If not, what is the name of the 4th district? 81.154.181.166 (talk) 14:18, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

I was wondering the same. According to the edit history, this was old vandalism that wasn't reverted completely. I've changed back to three now. //Essin (talk) 10:21, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
