KeepTurningLeft Season 6 part 11 Lindisfarne

The Farnes

Just look at the channels behind the island - it is like sailing through a piece of artwork. I have never been anywhere like this place. I am not a spiritual man but.......

    have you found them through spotify? you can create a station around a track and it will offer you tracks which other people also liked

    BTW, for people who are in a location where Spotify is not available, Jango ( is a very good alternative with no geographical restrictions.

    Happy Christmas Dylan , hope you have a relaxing & peaceful day with friends and family.

    I’m saving this film up for this evening once all the commercial stuff on TV is over and the kids are in bed.

    thanks george

    there are times when I look forward to retreat to the films to do some editing

    seeing all that sunshine and open space can be very therapeutic

    Hi Dylan, hope you’re having a good Christmas. You mention having been to Amble, which is SWMBO’s home town. It doesn’t appear in the film. Did you not film there, or did it get edited out? Shame if it did, as it’s an interesting place with a hermit’s cave up the river Coquet and a brilliant view of Warkworth castle.

    Best wishes

    John Booth

    Hi Dylan, enjoying the trips immensely and the music…have a great Xmas and New Year, not to mention a libation or two.Noticed John’s comment above, lovely place Amble, my father was up there post war ( RAF Air Sea Rescue) the Coquet was teeming with salmon then…..

    I loved Amble, I did film a fair amount of footage there, but failed to find anything that really got me going – loved the beach and the wildlife though. They used to catch tuna in the north sea – but guess what – the fishermen caught them all

    Also Alnmouth, seem to remember you had a nice time there, it is beautiful, maybe you could do an outtakes vid??!

    I’m tending to give you the full fiver every few films and it sometimes takes three bites to get through them maybe others are similar and this will affect your ratio of views to donations

    I’m also way behind in that I’ve only had time to watch half of what I have downloaded

    Hopefully others may be similar and revenue will increase as a result

    Wonderful stuff Dylan… a vivid and evocative glimpse of the Northumberland coast from a small boat and, in particular, you seem to have captured some of the magic of Lindisfarne in easily downloadable form.

    I was moved sufficiently to make a well-deserved donation.

    However, I did think your comments about Grace Darling were mean-spirited so I’m afraid I had to dock you £1. Hyperbole, furore and media frenzy – yes (and the story of her life after the rescue leaves a bitter taste). But all that came, uninvited, long after the Darlings took the decision to put out in the coble, in the belief that they were the only hope for those left stranded on the rocks and on the grim understanding that they risked their lives in doing so. The successful outcome was an act of great skill, strength and courage.

    I agree – I take it all back – but…………….. although I knew of her name I did not know his

    they both took the same risk – she got the money and the adulation – he got zip all

    Her dad was a serial rescuer and made a habit of such things (although by many accounts he took some persuasion in this case). I’m sure that his role would have been well recognised among his peers and locally and that probably meant more than the national frenzy thrust on poor Grace.

    What I’d never picked up until recently is that he was convinced the North Sunderland (Seahouses) lifeboat would not be able to come out given the conditions, but that it did in fact make the journey, finding only the dead left on the rocks. The lifeboat crew, which included Grace’s brother, then sought shelter at the lighthouse on the grounds it was too difficult to return to port. There’s a movie moment there, with the Darlings stunned that the lifeboat crew have turned up… and the crew stunned that the Darlings somehow have 9 survivors at the lighthouse. The lifeboat was weather-bound, with insufficient food, dry clothing and accommodation, for three days and even then couldn’t get back into Seahouses. No shortage of unsung heroism that day.

    For Info Dylan. Amongst your souvenirs, the metal window sash weight on the wooden spar was probably a crab pot weight still on part of the pot. We use to use them on the South coast as well

    I enjoyed this video very much, thanks, John S.

    tell me why then … that way I can make more films like this one


  18. 17 May, 2015 at 10:04 pmJohn says:

    I enjoyed it as well. Even though I know lots of fishermen and ex-fishermen who are quite jolly. Particularly in the pub.

    if you can drop the mast and the boat only draws 13 inches then that really opens things up for a small inland adventure
