Yorkshire walks.

I would walk for miles as a kid along this beach with my dogs. When the tide went out, I mean it really went out....... hundreds of yards of nothing but flat sand and a view into the distance that was simply too big for a ten year old to comprehend. Beachcombing was an amazing way to pass the time and I remember once finding a RAF Airmans ration tin. Just like a sardine tin, it opened with a key, which was missing, but after a bit of a battering with a rock I got it open. The only item within it that I can honestly recall was a tube(?) of condensed milk. I wish that I had kept some of my finds, I really do, because when the North Sea got rough....... all manner of treasures were left on the tide line.

Now the sea is advancing ever more menacingly into the areas south of my hometown and watching this short video has made me wonder as to how far those cliffs have been pushed back since the days I walked 'Rusty' and 'Chum'. Times I will never forget.

Yorkshire version of Atlantis.
Tunstall falling into the sea plus just about everything else up to Hornsea and beyond.
