Fourteen members had an earlier start on Sunday, November 8, after driving across the causeway to Lindisfarne before the tide came in. They made their way down to the shore, firstly stopping at an open garden where they observed a two-minute silence for Remembrance Sunday. They then climbed up to The Heugh lookout tower where they enjoyed beautiful views of Lindisfarne Priory and Castle. Spotting the congregation from St Mary’s Parish making their way up to the war memorial, the group joined in the service.
On their way past the harbour, the walkers commented on the upturned fishing boats lining the beach, which are now used as work sheds. Reaching the castle, they then made their way to view the lime kilns, after which it was on to Emmanual Head and a sheltered spot for lunch.
The group continued towards the nature reserve and Coves Haven where everyone enjoyed a walk on the sand and onto the dunes with views of Goswick and Berwick. After crossing back towards the village and enjoying a taste of mead, the walkers headed back to Berwick for a meal.
Next walk – Halterburn.
