South Ferriby Historic Background
South Ferriby has a fascinating history and this page should help you explore this. The location of the village, just where the Wolds meet the Humber has meant that since prehistoric times it has had a strategic importance.
The name of course correctly suggests it was a ferry terminal and in fact ferries ran from Feriby Sluice until the first World War.
