St Cuthbert's Cave is named after Saint Cuthbert (634-687), who travelled from Lindisfarne to Durham, and rested in this cave on the way. Cuthbert was bishop of Lindisfarne. He converted Lindisfarne to Roman Christianity from Celtic Christianity. I'm not sure if that's in his favour or not!
The cave is approched from a wooded path, which branches off into a ferned glade leading to the cave. It is a very special place, very peaceful. The rock of the cave is soft, and there are a lot of carvings - nothing prehistoric that I could see, but a lot of interesting 'graffiti' over the last few centuries. This includes carvings from the family that owns the land, though I would not class this as 'graffiti' - it is much more thoughtful than that. See if you can find the tributes they have carved .
In this synth I've tried to show how the cave appears to you as you approach it from the path. I am amazed about how well the synth program has replicated my photos. Although there is one bit where it gets it badly wrong!
You approach the cave along the path, explore the cave, leave via the ferned glade and are met by the vista of the Cheviots. But, the best bit is zooming in on the graffiti and testaments, or exploring the cave, or seeing the little pillar of rock that supports the caves overhang, or seeing my bike, or the Cheviot landscape - I can't make my mind up.
