Withernsea

Withernsea

Withernsea is a seaside resort town and civil parish in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England, and forms the focal point for a wider community of small villages in Holderness. Its most famous landmark is the white inland lighthouse, rising around 127 feet above Hull Road. The lighthouse – no longer active – now houses a museum to 1950s actress Kay Kendall, who was born in the town. Withernsea has a wide promenade which reaches north and south from Pier Towers, the historic entrance to the pier, was built in 1877, it was originally 365 metres long, but was gradually reduced in length through several impacts by local ships, leaving the once grand pier with a mere 15 metres of damaged wood and steel, which was removed in 1903. The Pier Towers have been refurbished since.
