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.

  1. Visited today, its a tough three miles each way, especially walking on a warm day, with 50% of the walk on soft sand. Make sure you allow time and take plenty of water.

    Disappointing that the lighthouse just had a sign saying ‘sorry, closed today’… visitors could do with that information before starting the walk.

    Also there was a dog walking on the beach past the ‘cut off’ zone. It was good to see and I think the policy around ‘no dogs allowed’ needs to be revisited. If they are under control, there is no reason why they should not be allowed on the beach.
