Wales remained as a distinct legal entity until 1746
Wales remained as a distinct legal entity until 1746 when the ‘Wales & Berwick Act’ categorically stated that any reference to England would henceforth include Wales (and Berwick). In 2008, 77% of the people of Berwick-on-Tweed declared they would rather be a part of Scotland. Berwick has alternated between England and Scotland 12 times in history.
