Description"In 2003 the Head of Parks and Gardens at Newcastle upon Tyne City Council, Stan Timmins, had a unique idea for a garden design based on the 7th century Lindisfarne Gospels. Entered into the Chelsea Flower Show, his brainchild won a much covetted Silver Medal for its excellence. Convinced that the Gospels Garden should live on after Chelsea, Timmins convinced the island's Community Development Trust to reassemble the garden on Holy Island. Grants were successfully obtained and the garden was constructed off the village high street, just opposite the Lindisfarne Heritage Centre.
