East Yorkshire coastal erosion

index to overlay maps

Prepared by Brian Williams, June 2012.



The University of Hullís Department of Geography provides online a series of maps that show the East Yorkshire coast as it was in the middle of the nineteenth century, overlain by aerial photographs taken around the millennium.

Each map represents approximately one kilometre strip of coast and depicts the amount of land lost to coastal erosion over a period of about 150 years. Below, the links to the Universityís site are labelled and grouped together for easier access.

Although the map referencing runs south to north, here the links are arranged north to south. Once a map is opened, the next in the series can be accessed by clicking on the arrows at the top and bottom of the frame.
