This DVD is part 3 of a special 18-DVD series by Great Britain Online recording the coastline of the entire British Isles at the start of the 21st century.


The coastline of North East England is suffering from rapid erosion in many places. This DVD provides archive footage of the coast as it exists at the start of the 21st century before great changes occur.


Our journey starts at holiday favourite Skegness and ends at historic Holy Island.


Some of the notable places visited include Cleethorpes and Grimsby, the majestic Humber Bridge, Kingston upon Hull, the Spurn peninsular, Withernsea and Hornsea, Bridlington, Filey and Flamborough Head, Scarborough, Whitby with its amazing Whitby Abbey, Hartlepool, Tynemouth and St Mary's Island and Amble and Farne Islands.


Amongst the lovely places encountered is Warkworth including the historic Warkworth Castle and Warkworth Bridge.


The coastline covered by this DVD possesses many splendid beaches and cliffs. Even when passing by the great industrial North East cities, delightful views open up of charming seaside villages and bays. The whole journey really is quite delightful.


The DVD generally encompasses the entire coastline of the route set out, with occasional stops to highlight places of interest, or to take in some exceptional views.


The British Isles is a geographical term denoting the group of islands including Great Britain (England, Scotland, Wales (Cymru), and Northern Ireland), Ireland, and all of the smaller isles and islands surrounding them.


This is an archive DVD that we continue to sell because of its popularity.


This is a brand new shrink-wrapped DVD which we, as the copyright holder and producer of the DVD, duplicated and which we sell on our site.


Customer comments


"Thank you for sending me the North coast video. It was great to see Scarborough again, although it is sad to see just how much coast is slipping away into the sea. Spun Head and Flamborough Head were good and I understand that you will be doing a video on Flamborough Head one day." (B. Tomkins, Manchester, UK)
