Kilnsea is a hamlet in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England, in an area known as Holderness. It is situated approximately 2 miles (3 km) south of the village of Easington, on the north bank of the Humber Estuary.
Kilnsea has one public house, the Crown and Anchor.
In 1823 Kilnsea was a civil parish in the Wapentake and Liberty of Holderness. The parish church, dedicated to Saint Helen, was close to the cliff and in a "state of dilapidation" and "dangerous condition". Repairs were considered useless with the expectation that the sea, which had already swept away the graveyard, would take the church "in a short time". Population in 1823 was 196.
The old St Helen's Church was lost to the sea in 1826, and was replaced by a new church in 1865, at a cost of £420, that incorporated some salvaged remains of the old building. The church was listed as a Grade II building on 14 December 2018.
