We are delighted to announce that Lundy Island has been nominated in the category of 'Landmark of the Year' at the BBC Countryfile Magazine Awards 2017. Now in their sixth year, the BBC Countryfile Magazine Awards are a celebration of the British countryside and its people, from great heritage attractions and our favourite holiday destinations to the best nature reserves and the finest rural pubs.
The five nominees for Landmark of the Year were chosen by Dame Fiona Reynolds, master of Emmanuel College and former director of the National Trust. On Lundy, Fiona writes: "this small island with its flat top and jagged cliffs offers visitors a magical mystery tour. Above ground are stupendous views, a unique atmosphere and fascinating history; below water, one of our most wildlife-rich sea coasts in the UK led to the establishment of the first British marine nature reserve."
The winner will be deicded by a public vote. You can vote for Lundy Island on the BBC Coutnryfile website here.
