Corbridge is located just the A69, about 18 miles west of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, it grew from the Roman town of CORSTOPITUM, a supply town for the troops on Hadrian's Wall.
Today, Corbridge combines a range of interesting historical sites with top-of-the-range shopping facilities.
The village was founded on its present site in Saxon times and Roman stones were used to construct many of the village buildings, including the church.
The streets, which remain much as they did in medieval times, house a range of innovative and interesting shops, pubs and coffee shops.
A wander along Front Street will take you down to the river bank, where you can enjoy the attractive views from the 17th century bridge - the only one on the Tyne to withstand the floods of 1771.
There is much to see and do in Corbridge, so visit our website for full details.
