From the Ramparts, HFF.

The Farne Islands and the Inner Farne Lighthouse from the Ramparts of Bamburgh Castle, Northumberland. The group has between 15 and 20 islands, depending on the level of the tide. The Farne Islands are associated with the story of Grace Darling and the wreck of the Forfarshire. Grace Darling was the daughter of Longstone lighthouse-keeper (one of the islands' lighthouses), William Darling, and on 7 September 1838, at the age of 22 years, her father and she rescued nine people from the wreck of the Forfarshire in a strong gale and thick fog, the vessel having run aground on Harcar Rock. The story of the rescue attracted extraordinary attention throughout Britain, and made Grace Darling a heroine who has gone down in British folklore.
