East Yorkshire coastal erosion

archive maps index

Prepared by Brian Williams, August 2014.



Maps held in East Riding of Yorkshire Council's archive collection provide an excellent resource for perusing the extent of land lost through coastal erosion.

The archive includes a full set of mid-nineteenth century maps (the original Ordnance Survey) at a scale of 6 inches to the mile. Later surveys are partial in coverage but offer a scale of 25 inches to the mile and are generally in better condition.

East Riding Archive Maps require the DjVu plug-in to view. Once the viewer is activated, maps should display in your browser.

The present page links to sections that cover the coast. Each link opens at the 6 inches to the mile map. An inset divides the main map into sections. Below the inset is a list of available versions – click on a list item for a dates drop-down, and click on a date for the relevant map.

Above the map is a toolbar from which zoom can be adjusted. There is also a drag tool and print icon.
