Withernsea: Carry Straight On

SPEAKER: Godfrey Holmes

Tuesday, September 13 at 3pm,
Wrecking Ball Arts Centre,

Those who carry straight on driving into Kingston-upon-Hull from the West arrive in the curious Seaside Resort of Withernsea.

But how does this Watering-Hole survive in the face of fierce competition from the Med; from tourist-magnets like Oxford & York? Or from better-known East Coast settlements such as Skegness, Bridlington & Whitby?

Today Godfrey concentrates on what it’s like to wander round - indeed live - in Victorian/ Edwardian Withernsea: positives like the Pavilion, Lighthouse, Pier Towers & enormously varied Domestic Architecture; negatives like a muddled retail offer, social deprivation.... & erosion of the cliffs.
