21 Sept - Aldbrough - coastal erosion

Aldbrough - Road to nowhere


Another village on the East Yorkshire coast. There is a caravan park and little else. Bleak in winter it has good Holderness cliffs to walk along as access to the beach is difficult. The village is just inland but as the photo below shows the sea is getting closer.

The Holderness coast is one of the fastest eroding coastlines in Europe, losing an average of 2 metres per year. Underlying the cliffs is Cretaceous chalk, but it is the glacial till (soft boulder clay) that is being eroded.
