Approaching     Lindisfarne              

The Holy Island of Lindisfarne is a tidal island off the northeast coast of England. It is also known as Holy Island. It is linked to the mainland by a causeway which twice a day is covered by the tide. Lindisfarne was founded by St. Aidan, a Celtic monk who came from Iona, the centre of Celtic Christianity in Britain. St. Aidan converted Northumbria to Christianity at the invittation of its king, Oswald. St. Aidan founded Lindisfarne Monastery on Holy Island in AD 635.
