St Andrews Church
This is the pavement of the communal oven for the baking of the villagers' bread and meat. It was first recorded in 1310 as the Kings Oven in the then Royal Borough of Corbridge, and was last in use in the 19th century
There are only three fortified vicarages in the county, and one of these is in Corbridge. The Vicar's Pele is to be found in the south-east corner of the churchyard, and has walls 1.3 metres (4 ft) in thickness. It was a three-storey pele tower, with one room to each storey, built in the churchyard in 1318, and used as the vicarage for the adjacent church. It is built largely from sandstone taken from the Roman fortress at Coria nearby. It was in use as a vicarage until the early 17th century. The original interior has been gutted.
