Grace’s home

The lighthouse was their home. It was built on bare rock just over 1m above water at high tide and exposed to the full fury of the North Sea. It was a bleak and wild environment where nothing would grow and no birds lived.

Grace and her family spent most of their time on the ground floor of the lighthouse. This large room, heated by a wood stove, was their kitchen and dining room as well as their living room.
Grace’s bedroom was on the third floor. The top level had the lantern, which warned ships of the dangerous rocks all around. The lantern was 25m above the sea.

Grace at work

Grace was kept busy all day with her studies, needlework and keeping the house clean and tidy. Sometimes, when her brothers were not around, she would help her father when he went out in the boat. Grace also took her turn at the top of the lighthouse keeping watch, day and night, for ships in trouble at sea.

From her lookout post at the top of the lighthouse, Grace
saw many ships passing by. She loved to watch the great
sailing ships on a fine day. As she grew older, she saw a
different type of ship. These new boats had short masts and
funnels, which let out clouds of black smoke. They were paddle steamers, run by steam engines.

The rescue

On 5 September 1838 the steamship Forfarshire set off from Hull to Dundee. Her cargo included cloths, soap, hardware, boiler plate and spinning gear. She also carried about 60 crew and passengers. The next day, the ship’s boiler began to leak and by the morning of 7 September the engine stopped. The Forfarshire
began to drift. Suddenly, at about 4am, there was a great crash
as the steamship hit Big Harcar rock. There was no time to call
the passengers from their cabins and get them into the boats.
Within 15 minutes the ship had broken in two. The back half
was swept away and sank, with more than 48 people onboard.

That night, only Grace and her parents were in the lighthouse. A fierce storm was blowing, with huge waves battering the lighthouse walls. At 4.45am Grace saw the wreck, but it was not until 7am that it was bright enough to see survivors moving on Big Harcar rock. William Darling thought that conditions would prevent the launching of the North Sunderland lifeboat so he would have to go himself. The only one who could help him was Grace.

Текст слайда:

Grace took blankets with her to warm the survivors. The tide and wind were so strong that they had to row for nearly a mile to avoid the jagged rocks and reach the survivors safely. There were nine people still alive on the rocks but the coble
could only take five in the first rescue. William leapt out of the boat and on to the rocks, which left Grace to handle the boat alone. To keep it in one place, she had to take both oars and row backwards and forwards, trying to keep it from being
smashed on the reef. On the rocks, William found eight men, including one who was badly injured. There was also a woman holding two children, both of whom had died. Grace’s father and three of the men rowed the boat back to the lighthouse, taking with them Grace, the injured man and the woman. Grace stayed at the lighthouse and looked after the survivors with her mother. Her father and two of the Forfarshire crew returned for the other four men. Nine other people had survived. When the stern of the ship was swept away, eight of the crew and one passenger managed to scramble into the ship’s lifeboat. They were rescued by a sloop from Montrose and taken to Shields that same night.

Текст слайда:

Soon the story of the wreck and the daring rescue was on the front pages of all the newspapers. Grace Darling became a heroine. Everyone wanted to know all about her, especially what she looked like. Since there were no cameras in those days, many artists visited the lighthouse to paint Grace’s portrait. For years after the rescue, the lighthouse was busy with visitors who wanted to see the famous Darling father and daughter. Grace was sent hundreds of letters
and presents. She was often asked for a lock of her hair.

However, Grace did not enjoy all this attention. She found that writing thank-you letters and sitting for portraits left her little time to get on with her life. In April 1842, only 4 years after the famous rescue, Grace became ill with tuberculosis. This serious disease was very common in the 19th century and killed many people. Grace realised she did not have long to live so, with her family gathered around her, she gave them each something from her collection of medals and presents. On 20 October, Grace died. The funeral in Bamburgh was very grand. Hundreds of people, rich and poor, crowded the little Northumberland village to say goodbye. Two years later, a memorial to Grace was put up in St Aidan’s churchyard in Bamburgh.

Grace Darling and her father showed the same qualities that night in 1838 as lifeboat crews do today. They risked their lives to save others in the face of great danger. The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea. It provides, on call, a 24-hour search and rescue service to 100 nautical miles out from the coasts of the United Kingdom and
Republic of Ireland. Since its formation in 1824 its volunteer
crews have saved more than 137,000 lives.
