Published by the GA in conjunction with the British Geomorphological Research Group.

Prepared by a subject expert, each guide has full colour photographs, high quality original cartography and illustration and, with the support of the Ordnance Survey, OS map extracts.

This fascinating coastline exhibits three main types of classic landform: spectacular vertical chalk cliffs (Flamborough Head); rapidly eroding glacial till cliffs (e.g. at Barmston, Mappleton and Withernsea); and a narrow sand and shingle spit (Spurn Head). The clear and authoritative text describes how the coast has been formed by glaciation, and how marine influences continue to reshape its outline.

An excellent, handy publication. I will certainly pop this in my pocket before a trip to this fascinating piece of British coastline Journal of Quaternary Science, December 2004
