In the thirteenth century the first mediaeval bridge was built to span the Tyne river.
Unfortunately it became derelict by the sixteenth century and was finally replaced in 1674 by the bridge you see 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. 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.
