Corbridge is a village and historic Roman settlement situated by the Tyne Valley in South Northumberland, where the major cross country A68 and A69 routes meet. There is a 17th century stone bridge in the town, Corbridge Bridge, which formerly carried the A68 and A69 over the River Tyne.

Before Corbridge and Hexham were bypassed, the A69 passed through both towns, running south of the Tyne on what is now the A695, then taking the current route of the B6321 and B6530 over Corbridge Bridge. The A68 also passed through the town from south to north on what is now the B6329, using the same bridge.
