Spurn Head, a spit of land on the Holderness coast, is a three and a half mile line of sand and shingle that forms a sweeping curl where the North Sea meets the Humber Estuary. It is a place of continual change – of constant erosion and reformation. It's a haven for plants and wildlife and also a place of man made interventions. The Humber is the UK's busiest shipping channel, requiring a permanently manned lifeboat station.
