Not all the sites on Hadrian’s Wall were heavily guarded fortresses. Corbridge was once a bustling town and supply base where Romans and civilians would pick up food and provisions. It remained a vibrant community right up until the end of Roman Britain in the early years of the 5th century. Corbridge was the most northerly town in the Roman Empire and one of only two on Hadrian’s Wall, the other being at Carlisle.

Today, you can still walk through the town’s streets and experience a time-capsule of Roman life. You can also discover Roman armour and trinkets uncovered with the Corbridge Hoard at the museum. The Hoard was one of the most significant finds in Roman history, providing us with a fascinating insight into the life of a soldier on the Wall. The museum is also home to the Corbridge Collection, the largest of the Hadrian’s Wall’s collections.

English Heritage looks after numerous sites along Hadrian’s Wall, such as Birdoswald Roman Fort, Housesteads Roman Fort & Museum and Chesters Roman Fort & Museum, along with Belsay Hall and Lanercost Priory. If you would like to visit multiple English Heritage sites, you can purchase either a temporary Overseas Visitor Pass or an Annual Membership.
