TA1824 : New River Humber Defences

taken 14 years ago, near to Paull, East Riding of Yorkshire, Great Britain

New River Humber Defences
New River Humber Defences
The picture shows part of the new River Humber defences near Paull. A new embankment was constructed a couple of years ago running parallel to the existing river defences some further 400m or so further inland. A deliberate breach was put in the original defences and the tide is allowed to flow in and out of the new area created. Apparently this aids with flood resistance and also creates a habitat for many birds and wildlife! The picture was taken looking south eastwards at MR: TA18102480 and shows the new artificial tidal lagoon.
