Grace Darling Cobble

The photo above shows the coble in which Grace and her father launched in atrocious weather to rescue survivors from the steamship Forfarshire which had struck the Big Harcar rock on the Farnes. The photo below shows St Aidan’s church as viewed from the Grace Darling museum with rather calmer seas in the background.

    One must ponder deep about the courage of Grace and her dad, taking to the violent waves and wind in such a small boat. It is well to have them so honoured.
