Surreal, beautiful, remote
by Sarah Crossland, Church Tourism Manager
There is always something magical about visiting a tidal island church. The incredible rhythm, the ebb and flow of the sea, means these shape shifting islands are other worldly, mysterious.
The changing waves and natural or manmade causeways mean that timing is everything. For a few hours each day, low tide reveals a strip of land joining it to the mainland allowing access to these remotest of churches. Often visitors must walk across the beach, sometimes there is a driveable road.
