Walk Description

Often described as Yorkshire’s own Lands End this spit of land has been an important part of the maritime history of the region since the time of the Vikings. The land is 3 miles long, hugged by both the North sea and the Humber estuary whilst being in places only 50m wide.

This means you can see both inland and out to sea in the same view which is pretty unique in the region. Highlights include the Lighthouse which frames spectacular views of the scenery as well as the wildlife in the reserve as this is real hotspot for bird watchers from all over the country.

The reserve is run by Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and they provide facilities and the activity centre as well as ample parking. This is a must see in the region.
