The 19th century Longstone Lighthouse is located on Longstone Rock in the outer group of the Farne Islands off the Northumberland Coast.
Completed in 1826, it was originally called the Outer Farne Lighthouse, and complemented the earlier Inner Farne Lighthouse.
The lighthouse is best known for the 1838 wreck of the Forfarshire and the role of Grace Darling, the lighthouse keeper’s daughter, in rescuing survivors.
Longstone Lighthouse was designed and built by Joseph Nelson and was first lit on 15 February 1826.
The tower was painted red and displayed, like its predecessor, a revolving light ‘showing the full face of a reflector every 30 seconds’.
In 1990 Longstone Lighthouse became fully automated, and the keepers were withdrawn.
