I wanted a single template map to work from on this project. After trying several ways of down loading portions of maps from sites on the internet I went back to old fashioned pencil, ruler and image. I will work out the scale another day but for now I am happy with this result.
The plain of Holderness is a geographical region of Yorkshire. To the west and north are the dip slopes of the Yorkshire Wolds (although I have chosen the Wolds Way as my alternative boundary) and to the south and east by the Humber Estuary and the North Sea.
Holderness can be usefully sub-divided into five topographical parts.
- Holderness clay lands
- Flood plain of the River Hull
- Slit lands of the Humber Bank
- Dip slopes of the Yorkshire Wolds
- Barmston overflow channel
