Upcoming Event: Sunday 16th June

1pm on Sunday 16th June sees the first Lost Buildings of Lindisfarne walk take place, kindly led by our volunteer Reserve warden John Woodhurst. It will be a unique chance to learn more about the forgotten buildings of the island.

Here are more details about this event from the Natural England press release:

"Local historian John Woodhurst will take us on a tour of the ‘lost buildings’ of Lindisfarne. Lumps and bumps in the ground reveal their fascinating stories, bringing to life the history of the area up to the current day and its vital role as a National Nature Reserve.
Starting at Chare Ends, the walk will take in the 19th century lime kilns, along with traces of other buildings related to the industry. Also in the vicinity is the site of an Edwardian nine-hole golf course! Looking across to the buildings on the Snook, we will then visit Green Shiel, a 9th century Anglo-Saxon settlement, before returning to the 19th century with a look at Ness End limestone quarry."

Please meet at Holy Island main car park, at Chare Ends. Be sure not to miss it, but places are limited so booking is essential for this event. All events are free. Please park at the County Council car park (charges apply).

A full list of our 2013 events and more information, including how to book a place on an event, can be found on the Events tab of our blog.
