Yorkshire's East Coast

Exploring East Yorkshire's Coastline

This website is intended for those with a curiosity concerning coastal erosion and an interest in military history.
There are few better places to observe the effects of wave action against a geologically fragile coastline.
This same coastline saw action in WW1 when areas along its length were attacked by sea and by air. In WW2 it was considered a possible landing ground for a German invasion, it was crossed by many bombers (both RAF & Luftwaffe) on their way to and from Germany and was the location of sites belonging to Britain's air defence and cold-war weapon systems.

This website is therefore a mixture of interesting locations - both military and geological.
Each of the locations is described and pinpointed with a map.
I have also included some useful tips on where to park and picnic on your travels.
Links from within the location pages are provided to dedicated websites for those wanting further reading.
A separate Links page displays other quite excellent resources.

The website will be a 'work in progress' for some time and new additions will be recorded in the Update Log.
