What is your favourite place in the North East and Why??
Mine has to be Corbridge as it has some interesting historical sites with great shopping facilities. The village was founded on its present site in Saxon times and Roman stones were used to construct many of the village buildings, including the church. Today the streets, which remain much as they did in mediaeval times, house a range of innovative and interesting shops, pubs and coffee shops. A wander along Front Street will take you down to the river bank, where you can enjoy the attractive views from the 17th century bridge – the only one on the Tyne to withstand the floods of 1771.
