Fenwick to Holy Island

Distance: 10 km (6 miles) Duration: 4 hours

fenwick-holy-island-profileWhether you stay overnight at Fenwick will depend on tide times, and how much time and energy you have.  Either way, the route is the same.  From Fenwick St. Cuthbert’s Way heads to the coast along historic paths and tracks, passing Fenwick Granary, crossing the main east coast railway line and Beal Cast Burn, past World War 2 coastal defences.

Having reached the Causeway at low tide you can choose your final approach to Lindisfarne – either taking the Causeway Road across to Holy Island or follow the posts of the historic Pilgrims Path across the sands.  For safe crossing times click here.
