Bridlington Weather

Bridlington is a town and civil parish within the unitary authority and ceremonial county boundary of the East Riding of Yorkshire. It is 19 miles (31 km) north north east of the unitary authority headquarters in Beverley and 24 miles (39 km) from the largest city in the county, Kingston upon Hull. The Gypsey Race river runs through the town and emerges into the North Sea in the town harbour.

According to the 2011 UK Census, the population was 35,369. It is a minor sea fishing port on the Holderness Coast of the North Sea with a working harbour and is well known for its shellfish. It has a mix of small businesses across the manufacturing, retail and service sectors with its prime trade being tourism during the summer months.

The origins of the town are uncertain, but archaeological evidence shows habitation in the Bronze Age and in Roman times. The settlement at the Norman Conquest was called Bretlinton, but has also gone by the names of Berlington,Brellington, and Britlington, before settling on its modern name in the 19th century.

The town is twinned with Millau in France and Bad Salzuflen in Germany. One of the UK's coastal weather stations is located at Bridlington. The Priory Church of St Mary and the associated Bayle Gate are Grade I listed buildings. The church stands on the site of the original Augustine Priory.
