Cradle of Christianity

Lindisfarne is only accesible from the mainland at low tide by means of a causeway, which can be reached from the village of Beal.To the south of the more modern road-surface causeway, a series of stakes mark the old route across to the island called the `Pilgrims Way' which was used in ancient times by visitors to the great Christian centre of Lindisfarne. Again this could be crossed only at low tide.
Lindisfarne is also known as Holy Island, beacuse of its links with early Christianity.
