Trinity Church (Corbridge)

This is the site of the church of Holy Trinity. It was first mentioned in 1356 and was still standing in 1549, though it must have fallen out of use sometime after this point. The ruins were cleared away before the end of the 18th century and the site converted into a garden. The area has now been built over and a row of houses called Trinity Terrace now stands there. In the 20th and 21st centuries building work in the area has found many burials, which were probably from the churchyard.
