Although it may again sound like simple common sense, I’ve seen dive boats waiting over the reef top or just pottering around with the engine running and nearly losing their divers when the surface marker buoy got snagged up and pulled down.

At low water, Longstone is the largest island in the Outer Farnes group. The island is unmistakable because it features the distinctive red-and-white banded lighthouse made famous by Miss Grace Horsley Darling and her father in 1838. It was built in the 1820s and replaced the round tower lighthouse situated on Brownsman, which was pulled down in 1826. The light on Longstone was first lit when the Darling family moved from Brownsman to the Longstone on 15 February.
