In the thirteenth century Corbridge was second only to Newcastle in wealth and its citizens were heavily taxed to help pay for Edward 1's Scottish wars and its mediaeval street plan is much the same today.
The scene of stormy events in the past. In 796 Ethelred, King of Northumbria was slain here. In 918 King Regnald The Dane defeated the English and Scots armies here. In 1138 King David I of Scotland occupied the town. In 1201 it was searched by King John. It was three times burned, by William Wallace in 1296, by Robert the Bruce in 1312 and in 1346 by King David II of Scotland.
As far back as 1827 Corbridge was a place renowned for its small shops and several of the decorated fronts still survive. Today Corbridge is still known for its quaintness and unique boutique shops and is an ideal base to explore the beauty of Northumberland.
