Link. Grade I listed. A cross base and a memorial in the churchyard are listed separately - they can be found here.
Just off the coast of Holy Island is the tidal island of St. Cuthbert's Isle. O.S. maps mark a Chapel (Remains of) at NU 1230 4162. This source dates it as medieval, and other surface features have been interpreted as possibly the remains of the hermitage of St. Cuthbert, mentioned by Bede. A photo of the island and chapel ruin is available here.
