Fishwick is a small medieval village and farm in the Scottish Borders, in the traditional county of Berwickshire. It is just north of the River Tweed which here constitutes the border with England.
Just south of the Tweed is the northernmost English village, Horncliffe. Between Fishwick and Horncliffe is the Union Bridge, a very early suspension bridge dating from 1820. When it was opened it was the longest wrought-iron suspension bridge in the world, and it is still carrying traffic, though now only one vehicle at a time. An adjoining toll cottage was demolished in 1955, and the crossing is nowadays toll-free.
