This is Lindesfarne Priory. Henry VIII destroyed it of course. It must have been utterly stunning when it was whole, but even now it has beauty and in the gathering clouds a sort of haunting sadness. I love this place that has been visited by so many saints. St Aidan came from Iona to live here and work with King Oswald of Bamburgh Castle to give the Gospel to the Saxons and Jutes who lived there.
