Church of St Andrew (Corbridge)

The Church of St Andrew in Corbridge was first mentioned in a monastery in AD786. The first church had been built before this time. Although this early church was partly destroyed in the 10th century parts of building can still be seen, as well as the remains of some Anglo-Saxon gravestones. Between the 11th and 13th centuries many changes were made. The church tower was built and the nave, altar, chancel, transepts and aisles were built at this period. Few changes have been made since this period, though there have been many repairs. The church is a Grade I Listed Building protected by law.
