Below from Google, isn't it a beautiful Abbey, what a shame it was sacked several times during the border wars.
Oh dear naughty me, maybe I shouldn't be walking on the old walls of this Roman Military Station... From the website below... it says... walk along the main street...
Visitors to Corbridge can walk along the main street of this Roman garrison town, flanked by the remains of granaries, a fountain house, markets, workshops and temples.
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, a tempting leave-centre for off-duty Wall garrisons.
Abandoned after the collapse of Roman rule in Britain, the town centre has been systematically excavated, producing the fascinating array of finds now most attractively displayed in the site museum.

Heading back home and quickly... this photo below, taken near Sheffield, is the last photo we took until after we'd got home to our little flat in Merrow and gone back to our jobs. What a truly wonderful time we had, what a beautiful and generous country Scotland is. Thanks Scotland... I know it took us another 36 years to get back but we did enjoy ourselves once again in 2005.
