NY9864 : The side street, Corbridge Roman Site

taken 11 years ago, near to Corbridge, Northumberland, England

The side street, Corbridge Roman Site
The side street, Corbridge Roman Site
This is the side street which divides the two military compounds. Originally it joined the Stanegate (the main street), but sometime in the third or fourth centuries a wall was built which closed off the far end and also linked the compounds.
The rise and fall of some of the walls was caused by their gradual subsidence into the ditches of an earlier fort.

Corbridge (Coria) Roman Site

Located 2.5 miles (4.0 km) south of Hadrian's Wall and sitting astride the intersection of Roman Dere Street and Stanegate, Corbridge was initially the site of a series of important forts. But after Hadrian's Wall was fully commissioned it developed into a prosperous town.

Abandoned after the collapse of Roman rule in Britain, the town centre has been systematically excavated. It is currently in the guardianship of English Heritage and is open as a visitor attraction, including a site museum.
