Vicar's Pele, Corbridge


The Vicar's Pele (defensive tower) was built in the churchyard of St Andrew's Church, Corbridge, in c.1318.[1] The Pele incorporates reused Roman masonry and has a vaulted ground floor and two upper storeys. The pele was built at a time of hostilities with Scotland and frequent boarder raids; it was used as a fortified vicarage until the early seventeenth century. The Vicar's Pele is a Grade I listed building. The old Market Cross of Corbridge now stands by the entrance to the Pele.
