Holy Island’s wildlife seen through the eyes of its community.
This purpose-built venue, on the path from the village to the castle, shares local insight into the island’s rich variety of wildlife. The display is an integral part of the building, with graphic details embedded into its structure.
The main feature is a large window offering visitors a unique view of a field managed especially to attract migrating light-bellied brent geese.
Lindisfarne is part of a national nature reserve managed by Natural England and the building is the starting point for a walk round the island, identifying key points of interest.
