Enjoy the History and Heritage of Corbridge
Corbridge, the home of Norma James, is full of history dating back to the Roman era. The bridge is the oldest of it’s kind on the Tyne and St. Andrews one of the oldest churches in England. Norma James has been in business since 1905 and in our store you can see a photograph of the original shop.
There are Roman ruins situated in the village and now there is even an app available to walk you through the amazing heritage.
Corbridge Roman Town is well worth a visit if you’re ever in the area. Not all of the sites on Hadrian’s Wall were heavily guarded fortresses. Corbridge was a supply base and bustling town where the Romans and civilians would pick up food and provisions.
Today, you can still walk through the town’s streets and experience a true time-capsule of Roman life. You can see a valuable hoard of objects found during years of excavation, including Roman armour and trinkets. These items provide a fascinating insight into the life of a soldier.
