One morning on Holy Island – 11.26 am

One morning on Holy Island is a set of 5 images all taken on the morning of  Wednesday, November 24th, 2021.

No. 4 of 5 – 11.26 am, Herring boat sheds and Lindisfarne Priory

The herring boat sheds are unique to Holy Island and are a sign of recycling genius! When old herring boats become too dilapidated and un-sea worthy, the fishermen simply flip them over to transform them into storage sheds.
Lindisfarne Priory was one of the most important centres of early Christianity in Anglo-Saxon England. St Aidan founded the monastery in AD 635, but St Cuthbert, prior of Lindisfarne, is the most celebrated of the priory’s holy men. Buried in the priory, his remains were transferred to a pilgrim shrine after 11 years. The Priory is still a place of pilgrimage today.
