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.
