Corbridge Things to Do

  • Corbridge Roman Town

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    The first Roman fort was built in what was generally known as Coria was built in around 86AD, probably for the Ala Petriana cavalry unit of around 500 men. That first fort was largely built of timer, with turfed earthen ramparts, and was destroyed by fire in 105AD. Other timer forts were built but around 140AD the timber buildings were replaced by...

  • Vicar's Pele

    Pele...or peel...towers are small fortified keeps which were built all along the English/Scots border during the early Medieval period. Raids from over the border were frequent for many centuries and local warfare not uncommon, so these fortified structures served not only as a fortified home for the local landowner or laird and his family but also...

The first bridge was built over the river at this spot in 1235 and, for hundreds of years, it was the only bridge between Newcastle and Carlisle. It was an important route between England and Scotland. That first bridge was replaced in 1674...

  • Pants - Wells

    A 'pant' is the local term for a drinking trough/water supply. Corbridge has several pants still dotted about, providing the village with fresh drinking water at a time when most houses did not have their own running water. There is a pyramid-topped pant in the Market Square (erected 1815) but the one in the main photo is on Main Street,...

  • St Andrew's Church

    The first known church on this site dates from 647AD, when Bishop (later Saint) Wilfred, the Bishop of Hexham, sent out the monks from Hexham Abbey (which Wilfred also built) to build either a church or a church-with-monastery at Corbridge. Part of that first Saxon church is still visible at the base of the later church tower. Parts of the church...

    Only a tiny fraction of what was once the Roman fort and town of Corstopitum...or Coria....has been excavated. The rest of what was once a bustling, thriving garrison barracks, market, supply depot and frontier town still lies beneath the soil of the surrounding fields.But even though only a small part has been excavated, and even though the town...

  • The Angel Inn

    The Angel Inn is almost the first building you'll see as you walk up to Corbridge from the railway station...or drive across the bridge from the main road which bypasses the village. I stopped there to rehydrate myself and was hugely impressed, not only by the number of customers sitting both inside and outside at around 11am but also by the...
