Spurn Point is one of the most striking features of Britain's coastline, stretching for three and a half miles across the Humber Estuary.
This curving spit is only 50 metres wide in places, making it look like an elongated tongue.
Spurn is made up of a series of sand and shingle banks held together by Marram grass and Seabuckthorn.
There is a series of sea defence works built by the Victorians and maintained by the Ministry of Defence, till they sold Spurn to the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust in the 1950s.
Spurn's environment is very fragile and is open to the ravages of the North Sea.
Spurn Point is an important wildlife haven for migrant birds, lizards, roe deer and numerous species of insects.
Fossil hunting is popular with an abundance of fossils to be found amongst the pebbles on the beach.
