St Cuthbert, Lindisfarne Priory

  • Description

    Day out on Holy Island (Lindisfarne), just off the Northumberland coast. Beautiful area. The priory was founded in 634AD and what remains is still in pretty good condition. The oldest extant piece of English historical writing was done there - about the life of St Cuthbert. There is a causeway linking the island to the mainland, but you have to watch tide times very carefully - the tide sweeps in quickly and many a car has had to be rescued.
