Grace Darling memorial, Bamburgh Churchyard
This is the most famous monument in Bamburgh, the memorial to Grace Darling, who, in 1838, with her father, rowed out in mountainous seas from the Longstone lighthouse on the Farne Islands, to rescue the crew of The Forfarshire, which had foundered on the rocks a mile away. She was 23 years of age. She died 4 years later, aged 27, from tuberculosis.
She is buried in the family plot nearby.
