190 - LINDISFARNE CASTLE - DAVE EDWARDS - INK - 1991 by 


BEST VIEWED LARGER

Lindisfarne, usually known as Holy Island, is off the north east coast of England, shortly before reaching Berwick On Tweed.

Celtic Christianity reached our country from Ireland via Iona and Lindisfarne. The Lindisfarne Gospels (similar to the Book of Kells) was written here. The Vikings invaded and slaughtered the monks, but some escaped with the Gospels and the remains of St. Cuthbert. They fled to Durham, stopping off at many places enroute, most of which ended up with a church named in honour of St. Cuthbert.

Tomg mentioned the Beblowe Craig, a volcanic mound on which the castle stands. Here is Tom’s photo, taken from a different perspective and showing more of the actual castle.

Wutz4tea, a new Redbubbler, mentioned liking Holy Island, so I am uploading this for her.

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.
