Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Hull and Hornsea Railway was a branch line in the East Riding of Yorkshire, which connected the city of Kingston upon Hull with the seaside holiday resort of Hornsea. The earliest proposal for a railway line to Hornsea was made by the York and North Midland Railway during the period of George Hudson's Chairmanship. This line of 10.5 mi was to link Beverley to Hornsea via a junction near Arram railway station north of Beverley. This line was to terminate at a site near Hornsea Mere. The line did not reach the construction phase. A second proposal, this time from Hull to Hornsea, was promoted by Hornsea resident and Hull timber merchant, Joseph Armytage Wade. The line was to both provide transportation to and from the agricultural region of Holderness, and to promote Hornsea as a seaside resort.
