Earlier this week, my home town of Hornsea was featured in an episode of Great Coastal Railway Journeys. OK, so it hasn't had a railway since 1964, but that didn't stop Michael Portillo from visiting the "pretty coastal town" to spend his time largely looking at pottery.

Actually, it does look rather pretty from 500 feet up in the air.

Portillo also went to Spurn Point. I thought he was going to mention the railway that used to run there, the tracks of which were visible next to the road. However, as the road itself was taken by the sea nine years ago (which I didn't know), he didn't have much to say about that and talked about lifebelts instead.
