Longstone Lighthouse


The lighthouse and keeper's cottage on Longstone, in the Farne Islands, was built in 1826 by David Alexander for Trinity House, Newcastle. As well as being an iconic landmark, the lighthouse is famous for its association with Grace Darling, who with her father, the lighthouse keeper, rescued five people from the wreck of the Forarshire in 1838. The lighthouse is a Grade II listed building.
