Photographer's Note

Herewith my version of the often photographed 16th century (Tudor) Lindisfarne Castle that has since been converted by the architect, Edwin Lutyens into an Edwardian country house. It is now in the possession of the National Trust.

It is perched atop a volcanic mound known as Beblowe Craig and accessible only by a 3-mile causeway, which is submerged when the tide comes in so you have to pick your time of visit carefully! It is closed 2 hours before high tide until 3 hours after.

Following the dissolution of the monasteries by Henry VIII, the castle was built in the 1550's using stones from the demolished Lindisfarne Priory, the ruins of which can be seen from the castle itself further down the coast.

It's interior is now open to the public and is well worth a visit, but be prepared to bend a lot!
