Lindisfarne, also called Holy Island, is a tidal island off the northeast coast of England, which constitutes the civil parish of Holy Island in Northumberland. Holy Island has a recorded history from the 6th century AD; it was an important centre of Celtic Christianity under Saints Aidan, Cuthbert, Eadfrith, and Eadberht of Lindisfarne. After the Viking invasions and the Norman conquest of England, a priory was re-established. A small castle was built on the island in 1550.
The next club walk in September, commences with a visit to Holy Island (or Lindisfarne) on the remote and beautiful Northumberland Coast. Time is allowed for exploration of the castle and priory on Holy Island before setting out on the walk, which traces St Cuthbert’s route towards the popular town of Wooler.
