Crossing the Tyne

Bridge Over the Tyne at Corbridge

Bridge Over the Tyne at Corbridge, Northumberland

Completed in 1674, this lovely stone bridge is 146 metres long and was partially rebuilt and widened in 1881. The village of Corbridge is on the north side of the river and has an ancient church, St Andrew’s and a vicar’s pele, a defensive dwelling in this once troubled region.

One thought on “Crossing the Tyne

  1. What a great old bridge ! It is easy to notice that the style hasn’t changed much since the Romans started building arch bridges over the Tiber.
    Thanks for the great shot !
