On the pivotal north side of the Tyne, Corbridge played a vital role in the Roman conquest of northern Britain. The fort dates from AD139, when the Emperor Antoninus Pius once more advanced the Roman frontier into Scotland. On a principal route northwards, it became a busy garrison town.
The remains include a fountain house with an aqueduct, a pair of granaries and walled compounds for the military, containing barracks, temples, houses and a headquarters building with a below-ground strongroom. The extensive museum displays a rich selection of Roman finds.
Corbridge is part of the Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site. An audio tour is now provided to guide you round the site.
