After driving over the Humber Bridge to get here, we parked on the roadside just before Winteringham Haven

We then joined a path which runs along the top of a causeway by the bank of the River Humber which we followed all the way to the small village of Whitton

After walking through the attractive little village we made our way back to Winteringham across low lying farmland

The terrain was almost completely flat throughout the walk – the highest altitude we reached was 30 feet above sea level, and the lowest was -14 feet. Nevertheless, there’s a unique atmosphere to this area and a real sense of isolation

For a person who likes to get away from it all, this is the place to come
