Lindisfarne Castle gets a makeover

25th May, 2018

Lindisfarne Castle Makeover


I haven’t taken a picture of Lindisfarne Castle (Holy Island, Northumberland) because right now it is swathed in scaffolding.

Out on the eastern fringe of the island the fabric of the building has been under constant pressure from the elements – so work is under way to remedy the damage done to the castle over the years. This work is due to finish this year.

However it is still a pleasant walk from the village to the castle. There is a shuttle bus available. You can go inside the building – it remains an interesting interior to see. The furniture has been removed and replaced in some rooms by a nodern art installation.

Visitors can also walk to the headland and the lime kilns and a delightful feature near the castle is a small walled garden. This is the Gertrude Jekyll garden occupying the site of a vegetable patch which once provided the soldiers in the castle with food.

Overall Lindisfarne Castle (owned by the National Trust) adds to the wealth of interesting attractions on Holy Island.

Go to The National Trust for more information on Lindisfarne Castle. The photo shows the path up tk the castle entrance so accessibility for those of limited mobility is an issue.
