Lindisfarne Priory

Lindisfarne Priory Rainbow Arch

The priory on Lindisfarne was founded in the 11th century by the monks of Durham on the site of an earlier 7th century monastery. The rainbow arch is all that remains of the crossing tower while the maze is a much later addition :-)

What a wonderful place. I hope I could get a chance to visit places like that someday. I've been able to visit one maze that is similar.
