Seahouses lifeboat features in Channel 5 documentary about lighthouses
Seahouses lifeboat crew recently took part in filming with a Channel 5 TV crew, around the Longstone Lighthouse at the Farne Islands.
It features the Longstone Lighthouse at the Farne Islands, in Northumberland, just offshore from Seahouses. From this location, Grace Darling carried out her famous rescue in 1838, from the wrecked steam ship Forfarshire, and became a national heroine.
