Lindifarne Castle (Holy Island) in Mono by 

Lindisfarne is a tidal island off the north-east coast of England. It is also known as Holy Island and constitutes a civil carish in Northumberland. Both the Parker Chronicle and Peterborough Chronical annals of AD793 record the Old English name, Lindisfarena which means “[island of the] travellers from Lindsey”, indicating that the island was settled from the Kingdom of Lindsey, or possibly that its inhabitants travelled there. In 2001 the island had a population of 162. Access is via a causeway which is only open when the tide is out.
