Corbridge is located in Northumberland
, North East England. It is situated on the north bank of the River Tyne and is an historic town with strong links to Roman times. It is located near the remains of a Roman town named Corstopitum which was one of the most northerly towns in the Roman Empire. St Andrew's Church
is another notable historical site and boasts a fine Saxon Tower and Roman arch which can be found inside.
It is also only one of only three parishes in the country to have a fortified vicarage; a well-preserved peal tower stands in the churchyard and dates from the 14th century.
It was built to provide refuge from bands of marauding Scots during the Border wars. The 2000 year old Hadrian's Wall, a World Heritage site, is also nearby and can be reached by means of a tourist bus that runs from local towns such as Hexham and Haltwhistle.
Many of the buildings in Corbridge were built from Roman Stones such as the Church. The town also has strong medieval influences which are evident in much of the town's architecture. Its 17th century bridge
is a fine example and was rebuilt in 1674. It is the only bridge spanning the River Tyne
to have survived the floods of 1771.
There are a number of agricultural events held in Corbrige throughout the year including the Northumberland County Show
