A descendent of William Darling
We're used to celebrities such as Penelope Keith and Michael Portillo coming out to the lighthouse but we had a lovely surprise on Sunday when a special visitor came out to see us. Mrs. Elizabeth Harrison is a descendent of William Darling and told us both her aunt and grandmother were both called Grace.
She was amazed by the views from the lighthouse and was overjoyed to have her photograph taken in Grace’s bedroom next to the Trinity House plaque and map of the rescue.
Here she is with George on the island and at the top of the lighthouse.
