Title: Across the Causeway

The film opens with a view across to Holy Island along the Lindisfarne Causeway and seals playing on the road. 

General views follow around the village of Lindisfarne, of the statue of St. Aidan of Lindisfarne in the shadow of Lindisfarne Priory, inside and around the ruins of the priory, and of the graveyard. Next, there's an interior shot of The Parish Church of Saint Mary the Virgin.

The film cuts to general views of the seashore with lobster pots and other fishing gear laid out on the ground, the sheds made from herring boats and other small fishing boats at sea. A catch of lobsters and crabs are unloaded from a boat into crates onto a quayside.

General views of the exterior of Lindisfarne Castle and the wildlife that grows there, and various views around the island.
