Danes’ Dyke at Flamborough
Flamborough Head, Flamborough, East Yorkshire YO15 - England, UK
  Share Location Map  
 
 
Danes’ Dyke consists of prehistoric earthworks, possibly intended as a defence, and woodland that runs 2 miles across Flamborough Head. Despite its name, Danes’ Dyke had nothing to do with the Danes, and was a much earlier site - probably dating back to the Bronze Age. Indeed the site was excavated by Major-General Augustus Pitt-Rivers in 1879 and Bronze Age arrowheads were found. Today, the area attracts many resident breeding and wintering birds, and is an excellent site for bird watchers at migration times.

First we started of at Flamborough lighthouse, then took a small drive approx 10 mins to Danes Dyke. We drove into the car park and got a cup of tea and ice pops for the kids. From the car park you can take a few pathways down to the sea. Just take your pick. But all lead to the sea and sand beach with lots of white stones. It feels such a strange place down there. Like something out of a dream, it's so lovely. If you look to the right you can see Bridlington in the distance. You feel like on some strange world. It's hard to explaine... so just see it for yourself. - Gary Elliott
