Spurn Head

Spurn Head

Spurn Head is a narrow sand spit on the tip of the coast of the East Riding of Yorkshire, England.

The sand is the progression of beaches from Flamborough Head along the coast including Bridlington, Hornsea and Withernsea along the North Sea and forms the north bank of the mouth of the Humber estuary.

It size is over 3 miles long but at some points it is only as narrow as 50 metres wide for access to the point itself.

The southernmost tip is known as Spurn Head or Spurn Point and is the home to an RNLI lifeboat station and disused lighthouse.

It forms part of the civil parish of Easington.
