Granaries, Corbridge Roman Site
Granaries, Corbridge Roman Site
The remains of two granaries at the Roman site.
Started around AD 180, the stone floors rest on low stone walls with channels between them. These channels are connected to vents in the outer walls, which allowed air to circulate under the floor and prevented the grain from becoming mouldy.
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.
