6th March - Saints Baldred and Bilfrith - Independent Catholic News: Hermits. St Baldred lived during the 6th century in Northumberland, as a hermit, first at Tyningham and then on the Bass Rock. According to legend, it was thanks to his prayers that a dangerous reef was removed between the rock and the mainland. All that is left of it is St Baldred's Rock. The saint's supposed relics were discovered with those of St Bilfrith in the 11th century and removed to Durham.
