Lindisfarne Scriptorium - Treasures for the Journey
Customer Type: Regular

This painting was created by Mary's father - Peter J. Prior.

Lindisfarne Castle was built on an outcrop of rock known as Beblowe Crag in the sixteenth century using stone from the dissolved Priory. The Tudor fort was built to safeguard a harbour that sheltered English ships at war with Scotland. The accession of James VI of Scotland to the English throne in 1603 united the two kingdoms and Lindisfarne Castle lost its importance as a border fort. However a garrison remained at the castle until the late 19th century.

In 1901, Edward Hudson, the founder of Country Life magazine, discovered the castle. He commissioned the architect, Edward Lutyens to convert the fort into a comfortable holiday home and the garden designer Gertrude Jekyll to create a beautiful walled garden. The castle is now owned by the National Trust, and its furnished interiors are maintained as they appeared in the early 20th century.

Peter's evocative technique captures the essence of the stunning Holy Island landscape rather than a photographic reproduction of the distinctive scenery.
