Lindisfarne Priory was founded by St Aiden in AD 635.

This desolate location on Holy Island became the most important Christian centre in Anglo Saxon England. The monastery became a focus for learning and the arts, the Lindisfarne gospels were produced here between AD 715 and AD 720.

The wealth of the monastery made it a target for Viking raiders from the end of the 8th Century. By the early 18th Century the monastery was disused.

For this drawing the monastic ruins were caught in fading light of a May evening.
