Lindisfarne Priory was founded by Saint Aidan, an Irish monk sent at the request of King Oswald from Iona Island. The priory was built before the end of 634, and Aidan stayed there until his death in 651. For almost three decades, this priory remained the only seat of a bishopric in Northumbria.

| Lindisfarne Priory x Ardmore
Lindisfarne Priory was destroyed and rebuilt many times and was eventually abandoned from 1536 to the present. Ardmore has been working hard to maintain the characteristics of coal-fed heating stills, but it is still invincible with the evolution of the times. It was replaced with steam heating stills in 2001. All of them strive to maintain themselves in history, but they still cannot resist the trend of the times.
