An introduction to Lundy island

Lundy island lies off the coast of North Devon, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Bristol Channel, with nothing between it and America. A granite outcrop, three and a half miles long and half a mile wide, it is synonymous with twitchers, walkers and climbers.

We visited the island for the climbing, and I have to say it was pretty awesome. On the Lundy trip were 16 members of the Bury Mountaineering Club.

Over the next couple of weeks, I shall be blogging about our trip, the experiences that we shared, the drinking, the laughter, and of course the climbing.

I am hoping to get a blog post out every couple of days, so keep your eyes peeled.

If you haven’t been to Lundy before, I hope that my blog posts might inspire you to get out to this remote and beautiful island. If you have been before, then maybe they will reignite that desire to go again.

We are already planning our next trip to the island in 2014. It’s a special place, and I have a feeling I will be back time and time again!
