Spurn Point is a unique place, as will be seen from the Maps Page.  It’s 3.5 miles long and only 50 metres wide in places. The area is now owned by Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and is a paradise for birders.  For more information see the YWT website

We parked at Kilnsea and walked along this fascinating strip of land, which will be lost to the sea one day. The usual navigational aids can be left at home, it would be impossible to get lost here – but don’t forget the binoculars

We walked along the track, sometimes leaving it to follow paths or to walk along the beach or alongside the mud flats on the other side

We saw lots of wildlife including a couple of deer and the walk was interesting and enjoyable every step of the way
