After more than 160 years, Grace Darling is still remembered for her selfless heroic part in rescuing the survivors of the SS Forfarshire, wrecked just off the Bamburgh coast during a terrible storm in 1838. Her story is now an essential part of the national curriculum for schools (at Key Stage 1 & 2).

Maintained by public donations to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, the Grace Darling Museum is located just opposite the family grave in St.Aidan's Church and provides the nation's largest source of family items, memorabilia and general information recounting this tragic event.
