Lundy village, Devon
An island of the North Devon coast in the stewardship of the Landmark Trust, Lundy is a three mile long, 400 foot high outcrop of granite in the Bristol Channel. It is thought that the island was first settled about 3,000 years ago as traces of Bronze and Iron Age settlements exist on the island.
The name 'Lundy' is thought to come from the Viking word 'Lund-ey' meaning Island of Puffins or Puffin Island.
Visiting the island is usually via the MS Oldenburg, with sailings at least three times a week from the ports of Ilfracombe or Bideford. The trip takes about 2 hours each way leaving day trippers about three to four hours to explore.
