England 2018: Corbridge

Visiting with our friends in Newcastle, and visiting our old haunts, took us to Corbridge today. First a tour of the Corbridge roman ruins (which I used to know as “Corstopitum” but apparently that’s not the accepted name any more). Whatever they are called, they are a very splendid set of ruins – I love the construction of the raised floors of the granary (keeping the grain dry), and all the water management drains / fresh water storage / etc!

 

We then had lunch in the (modern) village, and took a walk along the river Tyne.
