St Cuthbert’s Cave

St Cuthbert’s Cave is an iconic Northumbrian landmark on St Cuthbert’s Way.

It is thought to have been  the place where the monks of Lindisfarne brought St Cuthbert’s body to rest for a short time in AD875.

We will follow St Cuthbert’s Way and through a woodland area before reaching the Sandstone Way and back to the start of the walk.

Places of interest

The cave

St Cuthbert’s Cave is an overhanging outcrop of Sandstone rock, supported by an isolated pillar of stone.  It is reputed that the monks of Lindisfarne brought St Cuthbert’s body to this place in AD875 following Viking raids on the Island.

Latterly the cave starred in Vera.


We hope you can join us.
