Artist's Description

An English Heritage Grade I Listed Building

The volcanic mound known as Beblowe Craig, and sited on top of it is Lindisfarne Castle, one of the most distinct and picturesque features of the Holy Island, Northumberland, England. The castle can be seen for many miles around.

Following the dissolution of the monasteries by Henry VIII, it was built in 1550 in defence of the realm against attack by Scotland and in persuit of their Spanish allies.

Constructed of stone taken from the Priory the most interesting recent feature (1997) has been the re-facing of north-facing walls which featured the use of Yak hair in the render. The castle is excellently maintained by the National Trust and the view from the top truly magnificent – it is also unique.

Lindisfarne Castle is an English Heritage Grade I Listed building, List Entry: 1042306.
