We host the launch of Northumberland Day 2018
The official launch of Northumberland Day 2018 took place yesterday at the Lighthouse. Because we're the only licensed boat allowed to land on the island and visit the lighthouse we were chosen to mark the 180th anniversary this year of Grace Darling’s famous rescue and to publicise the many events that will be taking place across the county on the day in schools and centres.
The group walked up the steps that Grace and her father used to launch their coble to make the rescue and a youg seal was obligingly cooling off in a rock pool by the path!
Amongst the party was an Iron Age warrior who we later found at the top of the lighthouse!
