Longstone Lighthouse :: Shared Description
Longstone Lighthouse was built and designed by Joseph Nelson in 1826, and was originally called the Outer Farne lighthouse. The lighthouse is known for the 1838 wreck of the Forfarshire and the role of Grace Darling, the lighthouse keeper's daughter, in rescuing the survivors. The lighthouse originally used lamps, but in 1952 it was electrified, and in 1990 became fully automated. It is Grade II listed. Link
