Day two of our Northumberland holiday and we took advantage of tide times and good weather to visit Lindisfarne. You have two windows to cross the causeway each day and today it was safe to cross after 8.40. We'd never been before and it was very interesting to see the road was on a level with the estuary, flooding twice a day at high tide.
The causeway is over a mile long and there is a route across the mud for brave pilgrims as well, but we headed for the settlement on the far side.
The first stop was the ruined priory and active church in the main village.
