Bringing Bridlington Information to You
Anti-tank blocks can be found on the beach near the medieval village of Wilsthorpe. There is very little cliff here and much of the farmland is only a couple of metres above sea level. The area is now constantly threatened by the North Sea and was thought extremely vulnerable to enemy attack during World War II so was heavily fortified.
It is situated on the coast just off the A165 road and approximately 2 miles (3.2 km) south of Bridlington. It forms part of the civil parish of Carnaby.
In 2009 the East Riding of Yorkshire Council constructed a new 150 place secure boat compound at Wilsthorpe to replace an existing facility at South Shore, Bridlington. This is a first step in creating an integrated transport facility for Bridlington.
