Things To See - Hexham Abbey
A short distance from Corbridge is the town of Hexham with many buildings steeped in history. Hexham is an impressive mediaeval abbey town, full of cobbled streets with an assortment of fascinating little shops. Twice a week there is a general market, as well as an Auction Mart on the borders of the town - (a cattle market). (Approx 5 miles from Corbridge and easily accessible by road, train or walking.)
Founded by St Wilfrid in the 7th century, this splendidly imposing building has survived being burnt by the Vikings although it was refounded in 1113 as an Augustinian priory. In 1903 the nave was rebuilt by Temple Moore which is in contrast to the east end of the church which is early Gothic. The Abbey contains a host of fascinating relics and artifacts including one of the best-preserved examples of mediaeval art in England - a Dance of Death. If you are lucky you may find the curator allows you to view the crypt.
