The address may have a certain appeal...
...though the location gives cause for concern.
The site of Cliff Farm (or Cliff Top Farm) at the boundary of Ulrome and Skipsea is now completely cleared. Maps placing the farm in relation to previous cliff line positions are available here.
Defences to protect Ulrome’s seafront from the eroding power of the waves make up in mass what they may lack in elegance.
A variation of the defence strategy.
Unfortunately, the wall is eventually breached...
...and all comes tumbling down.
Sometimes it’s difficult to imagine the destructive force of the sea.

The beach at Ulrome to the north of the protected seafront.
A view in the opposite direction shows how the defended area projects from the retreating cliff line.
The sea sprays the frontage...
...as it pounds the base.
At the southern end, the defences have crumbled...
...and the rate of erosion is increased.
