Spurn Head Spit :: Shared Description

Spurn (or Spurn Head Spit) is a narrow sand spit on the tip of the coast of the East Riding of Yorkshire, it reaches into the North Sea and forms the north bank of the mouth of the Humber estuary. It is over 3 miles (4.8 km) long, and as little as 50 yards (46 m) wide in places. The southernmost tip is known as Spurn Head or Spurn Point and is the home to an RNLI lifeboat station and two disused lighthouses.
Spurn Head covers 280 acres (113 ha) above high water and 450 acres (181 ha) of foreshore. It has been owned since 1960 by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and is a designated national nature reserve.
Following a tidal surge in December 2013, a half mile section of the road to Spurn Point was washed away.
