The castle of Lindisfarne, which was built in the middle of the 1500s
it’s located at the little tidal island Lindisfarne in Northumberland
at the north-northeastern english coast line, not far from Scotland.
The island also known as the Holy island of Lindisfarne has a long history
long long before the tiny castle was built later on
the island was a very important centre of the celts, their traditions and their religion
and appears under the old welsh (celtic) name Medcaut in the sixth and ninth-century
the name owing perhaps the island’s reputation for a large numbers of medicinal herbs.
The old Lindisfarne Abbey.
It is accessible, most times, at low-tide by crossing sand and mud flats
which are covered with water at high tides
these sand and mud flats carry an ancient pilgrim’s path
and in more recent times, a modern causeway.
The island of Lindisfarne is said to be the very first landing point
of norwegian and danish vikings on their Great Britain adventure
an “unforgettable” adventure which perhaps was a pure nightmare for the brits
and in a way still to this day has left its mark in many ways in the British Isles.
On the island this sign is seen at a large parking area
maybe the locals think or hope that the vikings can be guided by sign instructions.
Now a days vikings are called tourists, don’t ask me about the difference (drake irony).
The inspiration was in a “weird” way the daily prompt “ANXIETY“
