The Humber Fortress DX ARC has once again been invited by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, to put on a station during International Lighthouse on the air weekend, Spurn High Light is a visitor attraction, and the tallest lighthouse in Northern England!

Made of 300,000 Staffordshire bricks, with a height of 128ft (39m) and 145 steps to the top landing, providing a spectacular view of the Spurn nature reserve and the River Humber.

We are pleased to have been invited back by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust to help promote the restored Spurn High lighthouse and for the 25 Anniversary of International Lighthouse Lightship Weekend and to back to Spurn Point to activate GB2SL.

Since our last visit, there have been changes to the shape of Spurn Point and it is now inaccessible to road transport due to the storms of 2013.

With at least 200yrd break between the mainland and Spurn point making a newly created island at high tide.

We are taking a small team of 10, regrettably only those who can climb Stairs can attend this event, manpower and equipment will be ferried to the site by the YWT, in “or should that be on” their Unimog all-terrain vehicle.
