Church of St Mary


St Mary's parish church on Holy Island is reputed to stand on the site of the original monastery founded by Aidan. The earliest parts of the building date back to the 7th century, several hundred years before the close by Lindisfarne Priory was built. The church was largely rebuilt in the 12th and 13th century, with the bellcote added in the 18th century.[1] The Church is a Grade I listed building.
