THE TYNE BRIDGE AT CORBRIDGE

  • Description

    A bridge has stood here for a very long time there is a record from 1306 stating that this was the site of the "only bridge between Newcastle and Carlisle" The current seven-arched bridge dates from 1674 and is deservedly a Grade 1 listed structure. Sturdy too as it was the only bridge over the Tyne to survive the great floods of 1771. A contemporary account tells us that the waters reached right up to the parapet allowing residents to wash their hands in the river! Clearly 18th.century Corbridge had some pretty cool dudes about the place..
