and is approx 127 feet high.

Cycle along the B1362 ,Hull Road out of Withernsea. Very quickly you find yourself out in the Yorkshire countryside. Continue to cycle along the B1362, which after a few miles changes its name to North Road and after you pass through the village of Halsham it changes its name several times.

A couple of miles past Halsham the B1362 skirts past the village of Burstwick . As you pass
Burstwick the B1362 changes its name to Main Street , and as you leave Burstwick you will travel over a small bridge. About 500 yards after this bridge you turn right along a small lane towards the village of Burton Pidsea.

the lane comes to a junction with the B1242 which takes you to Roos.
