The Old Alignment
The Old Alignment
This is the northern tail of the former A68 alignment past the Manor House Inn. The new road is on the right of the trees.
The A68 road

The A68 road, from Darlington to Dalkeith, is an inland alternative to the A1 to reach Edinburgh. It bypasses Corbridge to cross the Tyne, and the northern section is sometimes called "The Carter Bar road", named after the border crossing into Scotland at the Carter Bar.

The section south of Corbridge is mostly the route of the Roman Road "Dere Street".
