In August we had a chance to stay at a friend’s up in Hull and use his home as a base for our explorations of Spurn. Nick had arranged with Andrew Mason for us to go on one of Spurn’s safaris to recce the place and we were both looking forward to it.
Getting from Hull to Spurn Point on public transport wasn’t the easiest of routes, and involved two buses and a 1h walk from Easington. We just about managed to get there on time (there are a very limited number of buses going into Easington) and were quickly shown to our seats at the front of the Unimog. We were absolutely awestruck by the wild beauty of the place and had decided there and then that we would get this project to fruition even if we had to camp for the duration.

Andrew was very welcoming and patient with all our questions and assured us that there should be some accommodation in place for us either at the Point or by the visitor’s centre. I’ll now let the photos of what we saw talk for themselves, and hopefully, you will fall in love with the place like we did…
