Images of the east coast

Photographs - Coastal Defences

The methods chosen to control coastal erosion and provide protection to the various seafront communities along the East Riding coastline vary at each location. Where towns have a long history of growth the defended frontages often reflect this development, changing over the years to suit the demands placed upon them as well as the need to be continually rebuilt or upgraded.
