Lighthouse all set to go solar

Have your say

Plans to install solar panels to power the former home of Farne Islands heroine Grace Darling have received the green light.

Trinity House, the custodians of Longstone lighthouse, have been given listed building consent to place 27 solar panels on the nearby accommodation block.

The work had been pencilled in for next May, but concerns were raised by the National Trust and Natural England about the impact on the bird-breeding season.
