Visit… Corbridge, Northumberland, North East England

For todays visit suggestion we have headed to the North East of England and the lovely Northumberland town of Corbridge.

Corbridge has specialist shops, old inns and a 12th Century bridge spanning the river. Hadrian’s Wall and Housesteads Fort are nearby, whilst the market town of Hexham is a few miles away with narrow streets, a selection of shops and an abbey with 15th Century paintings and a Saxon crypt.
