ThisIsCorbridge.co.uk was established twenty years ago. It was a time when community websites sites were relatively new and a reason why the Corbridge Business Association weren’t ready to endorse the idea. However, we were not to be put off. We had a business in Middle Street and strongly believed it would encourage more tourism as well as a useful tool to check out village activities, etc. And we were right. Within a very short time we were receiving emails from all over the world, requesting information on the area, businesses and facilities and helping them with their travel plans, weddings and even genealogy search
Since then our Middle Street business has gone but ThisIsCorbridge remains and although the site has been upgraded its’ familiar Romanesque format and simple navigation have been maintained. In the meantime local businesses have designed their own websites, many linked to ours, and even the local trader’s association recently launched a site, showing that although Corbridge may be a small village in the North of England it is nevertheless very much part of the World Wide Web.
Spend a little time browsing the pages and planning your trip - don’t miss the Events Diary on our Home Page. We have given you travel directions and listed places to visit during your stay. With a choice of accommodation, you will find Corbridge an ideal base to tour the outlying regions of Northumbria and the Lake District, as well as being an ideal stopover en route to Scotland.
