|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. Today the streets, which remain much as they
did in mediaeval 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.
