Remains of Fort Godwin, looking south, Kilnsea, taken 4 years ago
The remnants of gun emplacements, formerly on the clifftop, now on the beach, subject to the rapid coastal erosion prevalent along the East Yorkshire coast. Fort Godwin was a coastal battery built to defend the ports along the Humber estuary. It opened in 1915 and was in use throughout the First World War and kept in use during the inter-war period. The battery was modified during the Second World War and in 1940 and was retained for use after the war.
