East Yorkshire coastal erosion

overlay maps

This page originally provided an index which linked to the University of Hull website (Department of Geology) where a series of overlay maps depicted land lost over a period of about 150 years.

Following a major upgrade of the university’s online facilities, the source material is no longer available.

An alternative is NLS Explore (zoom and drag) which offers adjustable transparency, choice of background maps from 1885, side by side display, coordinates, and measurement tools.

The following links open directly in NLS Explore where continuous OS six-inch to the mile (1:10,560) maps are aligned with recent aerial imagery. Starting location is Seaside Road, Aldbrough, about the half way point of the coast.
