Sandstell Fishing Shiel, Sandstell Road, Spittal, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland, TD15 1RE
The word “shiel” refers to the seasonal accommodation used by fishermen and in North Northumberland by salmon fishermen. The salmon fishing season lasts from 1st February until 30 November.
The shiels were equipped with bunks and fireplaces and were also used as storage for the fishing gear. Sandstell Shiel is a Grade II listed building. Records of its existence go back to 1735 and it is the only surviving unmodernised example of this type of building on the River Tweed.
