In places, it is hugely fissured and columnar and at the base of the cliffs near Bambugh, this shows in a peculiarly-shaped whinstone pillar called the Spindlestone or Hero’s Halt. Legend has it that the pillar was the place where the Childe of Wynde, the son of the King of Bamburgh, tethered his horse before going off to fight the infamous monster, the Laidley Worm. The fearsome creature was in fact his own sister, who had been turned into the dragon by a wicked witch. The Childe delivered his sister from the evil spell, which then resulted in the witch being transformed into a toad. Some of the most spectacular columnar and fissured characteristics of the Whin Sill are to be seen at the Farne Islands. Standing out from the cliffs at the southern end of Farne Island is a 20-metre high pillar of rock, standing like a huge monolith, called The Stack. Some more fine examples can be seen off the southwestern corner of Staple Island. Here, three large pillars, aptly named The Pinnacles, rise vertically from the seabed, making a very convenient home for many hundreds of seabirds. At low tide and just visible are the remains of a fourth pinnacle, called Broken Branch, to the north of the other group. This is said to have been destroyed during the Great Storm of 1783, along with the old tower lighthouse on Staple Island.
