A Roman High Street

Walk down the once bustling Roman High Street which runs from east to west through the town. This street once ran all the way to Carlisle forming part of the Roman road known as the Stanegate.

As you step where Roman feet once walked, imagine picking up your supplies from the granaries, and look out for the remains of the fountain house and a large courtyard building. This main street continues under the fields both east and west of the remains that you can see today.

The Corbridge Hoard

See a fascinating display of a treasure trove found 50 years ago in the grounds of Corbridge Roman Town.

On display in our museum, the Corbridge 'Hoard' is one of the most influential Roman 'Time Capsules' ever discovered in Hadrian's Wall Country.
