Spurn Point
East Yorkshire
Spurn Point is made up of sand dunes with a single track road going 3.5 miles to its tip where there is a little settlement made up of the permanent Lifeboat Crew and the Humber pilots who guide ships in through the hidden underwater sandbanks.Many people come here to watch the migratory birds or to wander around the old fortifications that were dug into the sand dunes during the First World War. At the mouth of the estuary, built on sand banks, can be seen Bull Sand Fort and Haile Sand Fort. The Point is owned by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust. There are no facilities beyond the Visitor Centre at the start of the road.

WW1 Gun emplacements
Spurn Point

To guard shipping coming in and out of the Humber, gun emplacements were built at the tip of the Point. Many of these were built into the sand dunes - to build them a single track railway was laid along the point (the rails can be seen at various points). Out in the estuary itself were built two iron 'forts' that can still be seen.
