As an island nation, our heritage is inextricably linked to the sea. The Yorkshire coast exemplifies how these links have shaped our past, influence our lives today and will shape them into the future. The papers in this booklet, delivered at a conference held in Scarborough, consider the physical characteristics of the Yorkshire coast, the industries developed along it, the growth of seaside towns, recreation, and the need for conservation of marine and coastal habitats.
