Spurn Point is an area that’s close to where I live and yet I think I’ve visited the place maybe twice in 20 years. I guess I’ve just been busy or maybe not that interested and yet once you see it and get a chance to walk around it’s a really fascinating coastal area.
Not only have you got a really peaceful beach (peaceful because it’s not full of tourists or visitors of any kind and it’s mainly shingle and not sand) but there’s a lot of interest here.
For a photographer, there’s a lot of interest especially things like the aging groins, the lighthouse, the windswept sand areas, the coastal erosion, the old gun platforms from WWII. Plenty to aim your camera at.
I think this is a place I will visit more often if only to be able to disconnect from the world a little and gain some solace. It really is quite isolated now and even more so with the rapid pace of coastal erosion.
In fact I’m not sure exactly how long it will be here but I suspect it will certainly be lost to the sea inside my lifetime, it’s already pretty inaccessible certainly by car.
