From its most north easterly point at Filey Ravine on the Yorkshire Coast (where the North Riding’s meets the East Riding)’s southwards along the Holderness coast to Spurn Point at the mouth of the Humber, then following the river westwards to Holl Old Town, and then onwards to Boothferry Bridge (where the East Riding meets the West Riding), via Beverley, Market Weighton and Howden.
The East Riding is the smallest and least populated of Yorkshire‘s three ridings, with the lowest-lying land. It has a lengthy North Sea coast from Filey to Spurn Point at the mouth of the River Humber. The low-lying land in contrast to the other two ridings, but it provides rich agricultural land. In the centre of the East Riding lies the Yorkshire Wolds, of undulating chalk hills and dales which never rises above 900 feet. Holderness is the flat land between the sea and the Humber, culminating in a sand bar at Spurn Point at the mouth of the Humber.
