River Humber (Humber Estuary) - North Lincolnshire

The River Humber is in fact a large tidal estuary forming the boundary between North Lincolnshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire.

The Humber starts at the Trent Falls at the confluence of the River Ouse and the River Trent. On the south bank it passes Whitton and Winteringham. Moving east, Reads Island is located between Winteringham & South Ferriby sluice. The island covers an area of approximatley 200 acres, however this constantly changes as silt is deposited and then washed away by the tides. The Humber continues onto the River Ancholme and pebbly beach at South Ferriby. Moving further east the estuary flows under the Humber Bridge at Barton-upon-Humber, past the port of New Holland then into the North Sea between Cleethorpes and Spurn Head.
