The RNLI Grace Darling Museum, dedicated to Grace Horsley Darling, tells the story of her brave rescue of nine men from a tragic shipwreck. Four years after the rescue Grace died of tuberculosis and was buried in St Aidan’s churchyard and money was raised to build a monument in her memory. The museum was set up one hundred years after the rescue but closed for a time in 2002 and reopened in 2007. The museum is located in Bamburgh Castle’s walled garden, the garden that Grace’s grandfather worked in. A place of worship was founded on the site of St Aidan’s Church in 635 by Saint Aidan who was called to Bamburgh from Iona by King Oswald to establish Christianity in his newly united Kingdom of Northumbria. The site of his death is marked by a simple shrine within the present church. The existing church building dates from the end of the 12th century.
