The spurn head - coastal landform


A coastal landfrom- The spurn head

The spurn head is south of the holderness coastline in yorksire which is north east england. The main feature of the spurn head is the spit. The spit is formed by longshore drift where sediemnts are moved across the coastline at a right angle. This changes the shape of the land as sediments transport across the coastline. Waves cannot pass the spit, which creates a sheltered area where slit is deposited and salt marshes form.
