Travel Tips for North Ferriby

Fancy a walk through the Humber?

by northeast80

Well 6'9" Graham Boanas did it in 2005 to raise money for the charity DebRA and raised over £20,000.
The headline was "A man has waded across the River Humber for what is believed to be the first time in more than 1,000 years"
Good on him!
The same guy also walked across the Mersey more recently.

Where the Romans Crossed the Humber

by northeast80

On a blustery Easter Monday we walked from Hessle Foreshore (at the Humber Bridge) to North Ferriby along the Humber.
You pass by the train track and of course walk along the beautiful Humber, with views of Lincolnshire across the other side.
North Ferriby has a lovely pub, serving food and good local ales, an Italian restaurant, two churches, a post office, a Co-Op and a school, it also has some lovely Georgian houses.

"North Ferriby" is a Danish name - Ferja bi: place by a ferry. The first wave of Danes settled about 876, by about 900 Danes and Saxons had grown into one people. Towards the end of the 13th century the village was in the hands of the de Vescy family of Broomfleet, later Willaim de Clyf was appointed to replace him, but Richard de Vescy and his associates resisted Clyf by force. De Vescy was denounced and excommunicated, but was only removed by the forces of the King.
The de Vescy family also founded North Ferriby Priory in 1152, called "The Prior and Brethren of the House of the Lord's Temple of Jerusalem". No other Priory in England was known to belong to this order. The Temple of the Lord was a church in Jerusalem distinct from the Temple of Solomon to which the Knights Templar were attached.
