East Yorkshire coastal erosion

archive maps index

Maps held in East Riding of Yorkshire Council's archive collection provide a useful 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.
