Spurn Point Lighthouse

Sheffield, United Kingdom

Artist's Description

Spurn Point (or Spurn Head as it is also known) is a narrow sand spit on the tip of the coast of the East Riding of Yorkshire, England that reaches into the North Sea and forms the north bank of the mouth of the Humber estuary. It is over 3 miles (4.8 km) long, almost half the width of the estuary at that point, and as little as 50 yards (46 m) wide in places. 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.
This is the ‘newer’ lighthouse at Spurn, based on the land ‘proper’ (rather than down on the sands). The lighthouse is no longer operational, and is not open to the public. The lighthouse is well worth a visit though, as you get to see the earlier Low Light lighthouse too, and experience the beauty and wilderness of Spurn Head itself.
