Photographer's Note

Lindisfarne Castle- Northumberland. A stunning and beautiful place on this world and even more fun in Spring is in the air and even the Lambs are " Jumping for Joy".

I had not noticed this young chaps action until I was going through the images from last weeks trip up North..

I guess I could have cropped it closer but did not want to loose the magnificent Castle.

About this Photo:

There are many photos on TE of this stunning Castle - It just lends itself to it. This however is the side of the Castle that is least attractive ( sort of like takiung a picture of your back door and back garden). The colours and the Lamb just made it for me.

The funny shapes on the LHS are overturned Herring Drifters - Cut in half and now used as storerooms and the Ticket office for the National Trust ( who now Manages the Castle). They are intriguing boats and I will post a separate image and details)

About the Castle:

There is so much on the Castle on the webb , I could not try to cram it all in - but briefly.

The original in habitants of the Island can be traced back to 635AD (St Aiden) - The Island is primarily a spritual and religious Island - Thus the name.

Dramatically perched on a rocky crag and accessible via a three-mile causeway at low tide only, the island castle presents an exciting and alluring aspect. Originally a Tudor fort, it was converted into a private house in 1903 by the young Edwin Lutyens. The small rooms are full of intimate decoration and design, with windows looking down upon the charming walled garden planned by Gertrude Jekyll. The property also has several extremely well-preserved 19th-century lime kilns
