Parish Church Of St Mary's

In the grounds of Lindisfarne Abbey. Located in the southwest corner of the village, the Anglican 'Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin' is reputed to stand on the site of the original monastery founded by Aidan in 635ad. Parts of the structure date back to the 7th century, several hundred years before the appearance of the Priory.

Whilst its main role is to serve the small Island community it is also a year-around focus for tens of thousands of visitors and pilgrims - Christian and others.
