Another early morning shot from Spurn (5:00am)
since mid-Victorian times Spurn has been kept in place by artificial coastal defences, begun after a massive breach which took place in 1849, when the peninsula was composed of a string of islets. The groynes and revetments to protect the peninsula were first erected by the Board of Trade, but when military forts were established on the Point the Army took over, with the Royal Engineers, and later civilians, working upon the maintenance of the sea defences, until the late 1950s, when the military left.
So ends the lesson for today
