TA4214 : Sand Bar at Spurn Head

taken 3 years ago, near to Kilnsea, East Riding of Yorkshire, Great Britain

Sand Bar at Spurn Head
Sand Bar at Spurn Head
Following severe storm erosion, Spurn Head is now Britain's most recent tidal island, meaning it has lost a permanent dry connection to the mainland.
The sand bar shown here is above the tidal limit most of the time, but under certain conditions it submerges and the end of the head becomes an island.
Warning notices are posted at the places where you come onto this section, and a small shed has been provided at the seaward end so anyone who gets stranded has a place to sit it out until a crossing is safe again.
