City of Birmingham swimmer Terri Dunning claimed two medals to help British swimmers complete a meet to remember.
The 21-year-old student from Hednesford won England's first medal on the final night of glory in the Commonwealth Games swimming pool with a bronze in the women's 200 metres butterfly behind Australians Jessicah Schipper and Felicity Galvez.
"It is my first major games and to come here and get my first medal I have had to keep focused all week," said Dunning.
She still had the energy to swim the third leg as England took silver in the 4x100m medley relay final.
Another medal for teammate Melanie Marshall meant she became the most successful English woman medallist at a Commonwealth Games with six. She surpassed June Croft in 1982, Karen Pickering in 1994 and Karen Legg in 2002, who all claimed five.
Meanwhile, David Davies turned the tide of history, winning the first Welsh swimming gold for 32 years at these Games when he glided imperiously to the men's 1,500m freestyle title.
Victory for Davies ended a 52-year dominance by Australian swimmers in the event.
Rebecca Cooke took silver in the 400m individual medley to go with her earlier gold in the 800m freestyle.
The England men 4x100m medley team matched the women compatriots with silver, and Scotland took their swimming medal total to 12 with a bronze in the same race.
