The Story of Grace Darling | Primary History | BBC Teach

Famous Victorian Grace Darling and her brave sea rescue off the Farne Islands in 1838. Grace Darling is remembered for the rescue she undertook with her father in the Farne Islands in 1838. The SS Forfarshire had broken up on rocks within sight of the lighthouse at Longstone, which was home to Grace and her parents. Grace was determined to undertake a rescue immediately but was persuaded by her father to wait until morning and better light. Grace and her father then set out through the stormy sea and collected some of the survivors. They rowed back to Longstone Lighthouse where Grace and her mother looked after the survivors while her father returned to the shipwreck to collect the last of the survivors. Grace soon found herself celebrated in print...even Queen Victoria wrote to her with a reward. Today Grace's memorial can be found in the churchyard at Bamburgh, where there is also a museum about her.
