An amazing place, desolate and haunting.
Two abandoned lighthouses and one very, very long windy, narrow road(ish) covered in sand – imagine a beach bridle path only half width, with more sand, more wind and the North sea breaking over you to your left and the Humber estuary lapping at your tyres to the right.
Spurn Head is 3 miles long and is managed by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, who maintain the incredible diversity of plant and wildlife with a light touch.
From the end of Spurn Head you can just about make out Hull (not that you would want to).
The Humber estuary is immense.
