According to a information board outside the Abbey on Lindisfarne 'Fiery dragons' were seen in the sky the night before the Norsemen attacked the Island and destroyed the old Abbey -in St Cuthberts time. (Some time ago and not covered in the Berwickshire Times)
Here we have fiery dragons over Hutton a couple of nights ago (Images taken 10 minutes apart just before 10pm). Nothing ontoward happened the following day although I did catch a glimpse of the Nordic lady who lives down the road. She did however not sack the church-not that many people may have noticed if she or another wave of Vikings had done so. An assault on the Village Hall? Now, that would have been different.
The other picture is Lindisfarne Abbey. None of the damage can be blamed on the Vikings-just long years of neglect
