Hornsea

A view of Hornsea beach consisting of sea defences including groynes

A view looking south at Hornsea.

Hornsea is an ideal location to complete fieldwork including beach profiles, sediment analysis, measuring longshore drift, cliff surveys and investigating the impact of coastal management (groynes). It is worth visiting the southern end of the beach (near the caravan park), where the sea defences end, there is a marked increase in the rate of erosion.

You can find out more about Hornsea on Internet Geography.

Mappleton – coastal management scheme

Mappleton sea defences including a stone groin

Mappleton sea defences

In 1991 almost £2 million was spent on two rock groynes and a rock revetment to protect Mappleton and the B1242 coastal road. Blocks of granite were imported from Norway for the sea defences. The purpose of the two rock groynes was to trap beach material. As the result of the coastal management a substantial beach accumulated between the groynes halting erosion.

Free parking is available at the car park on the sea front. It is accessible to coaches. A public toilet is also available.
