As part of the Active Coast 2018 programme, a new feature this year will be ‘Cover the Coast ‘ – ten circular walks exploring the full East Yorkshire coast in manageable sections.
The walks will include the area’s key coastal villages, towns, beaches, and countryside, and a range of spectacular locations, and will range from five to 12 miles in length.
The programme of walks will take place on Fridays, and begins on Friday 2 February at 10am with an eight-mile walk from the Humber Bridge (starting at the Tourist Information Centre) to Barton upon Humber and back. This will be a chance to enjoy great views of Hull and the East Riding whilst walking around the Water’s Edge Country Park.
Councillor Richard Burton, portfolio holder for leisure, tourism and culture, said : “This programme of walks is a great addition to the Active Coast programme for 2018. Future walks will include areas such as Paull and Hedon; Easington; Withernsea; Aldbrough; Skipsea; Bridlington; and Bempton, taking in our stunning coastline. Anybody completing all of the walks will have covered most of the East Yorkshire coast!”
Booking is essential, although the walks are free of charge, and can be done online at or by calling 01482 395320
