About Corbridge

Corbridge is a village in Northumberland, that lies four miles east of Hexham on the banks of the River Tyne. It dates back to Roman times when it was known as Corstopitum as it served as a garrison town for the central section of Hadrian's Wall. It was once a market town and now has a reputation for excellent shopping with small independent shops.
