The Bishop of Berwick was an episcopal title used by a suffragan bishop of the Church of England Diocese of Durham, in the Province of York, England.[1] The title takes its name after the town of Berwick-upon-Tweed in Northumberland. Since the death of the only bishop in 1572, the title has remained in abeyance.[2]
