View from Longstone Lighthouse
View from Longstone Lighthouse
An evening view taken from the lamp room of the Longstone Lighthouse, showing the site of the famous Grace Darling rescue. The small islands in the foreground are Clover Carr and Big Harker, and the larger island with the old lighthouse is Brownsman. On a stormy night in 1838, the steamship Forfarshire ran aground on Big Harker and broke up. Grace and her father rowed out in a small boat and saved the lives of 4 men and a woman who were clinging to the rocks.
