Oysters – Lindisfarne


Boxes Of 12



The Lindisfarne Oyster Farm lies on the site of the oyster beds established by the Monks of Lindisfarne Priory.

The Rev James Raine recorded evidence in “History and Antiquities of North Durham” to suggest that the oyster beds were originally founded in 1381, when the Monks bought an oyster filled boat from a Scotsman for 100 shillings. He deduced that prior to that date there were no local oysters and theorised that the very purchase started off the Monks own oyster farm.
