“Spurn is a special place. Picturesque landscapes, romantic settings steeped in history with unrivalled views of the Humber estuary. It’s home to the only full time lifeboat crew in England, who all live at the Point. Spurn defended England from 1588 (the Spanish Armada) right up to World War II. If you look closely you can see many old military structures. The area is managed by Yorkshire Wildlife Trust as a nature reserve so is like a natural theme park right on your doorstep! By leaving your car behind and using the bus you are helping to protect the area’s precious wildlife as well as reducing your carbon footprint by choosing a sustainable form of transport. Using the bus also reduces congestion on narrow country roads and causes less disturbance to local residents.” EYMS News Release
