Spurn Head

East Riding’s Spurn Head Spit reaches tentatively into the North Sea like some long spindly desolate tentacle. Sprinkled with the remnant’s of the Spit’s World War Two activities, there’s also one of only two permanently manned life boat station’s in the UK, and a quite Blofeld-esque control tower for the Humber estuaries busy shipping lanes. A wise explorer will pay close attention to the tides before embarking upon the three mile walk to the tip, as parts of the route become submerged for hours at a time. A lovely, lonely and very atmospheric part of the UK’s coast.
