FlamboroughHead Lighthouse



Feeling a bit nostalgic so I thought I'd share this video with you.

This is where I grew up, literally on the cliffs of Flamborough Head, East Yorkshire, UK. The ruffling noise you can hear is the wind. It's always windy there. Our house was located right above the large patch of yellow gorse bushes you see on the cliff side in the video and about a hundred yards from the lighthouse. The house is no longer there now. If you listen hard you can hear the seagulls at the beginning, and at the end you can hear the skylark singing.

Hmmm.... I wonder if I'll ever get back there again. It's wild, windy and bleak, but oh so magnificent! And on a sunny day there is nothing like it.

Going to bed to dream of Flamborough!

Having just been "home" I'm thinking it must be rare indeed to return and feel that long ago sense of being where one belongs.
An interesting video, and I see you were up late posting.
Thank you for sharing it.

I enjoyed the video and saw the yellow gorse bushes and think I saw the house above it on the top of the cliff. Wow. What a view you must have had in those days.

Our hummingbirds have gone for the winter. South somewhere. We still have some sugar water out for any stragglers. Seen none in about a week.

It is 39 degrees F here this morning. Frosty. Roofs are mostly white with the frost.

Thank you for the show! I would have loved to walk around that lighthouse with a camera - lovely area.

PS Come by tomorrow, and you'll find more from Yorkshire :-)

I have never been to UK, but these are beautiful pictures. Thank you for sharing this video with us.

One question. Did anyone ever fall over those cliffs? They look dangerous to me.

ChrisJ said...

Oh yes, people do fall over the cliffs and in windy weather I know of at least one cabin, car and caravan that have been blown over. But the natives know not to go too close to the cliffs. Summer visitors usually get caught in one of the coves and try to climb up them, but it can rarely be done. The coast guard and fishermen keep pretty busy.
