An Attractive Village Offering Dining, Sport and Heritage
With a population of just under 4,000, North Ferriby is home to a quiet civil parish community. Connecting to major cities through its charming train station and just a fifteen-minute drive from Hull City Centre, it’s perfect for a village lifestyle without feeling disconnected.
The area is located along the River Humber and as a result has an attractive foreshore. This is where the historically important Ferriby Boats were found in the 1930s, which following carbon-dating were found to be thousands of years old. They are now on display in the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, although a replica is viewable in the Hull and East Riding Museum and a memorial plaque can be found on the original site.
When it comes to daily life, residents of North Ferriby have a newsagent, chemist, post office, village and parish halls, hairdressers, coffee shop, a large Co-op store and a takeaway on their doorstep. As for getting together over drinks with friends, family meals or special occasions, the Duke of Cumberland is popular with locals and visitors alike. Thanks to its Cask Marque, you can enjoy fine ales in its rustic interior or wonderful beer garden.
Just a few feet away from the pub, Medici is a beautiful restaurant dedicated to a stylish dining experience. Its setting is an attractive Georgian building that has been renovated to modern standards without affecting its timeless elegance, combined with authentic Italian cuisine and exemplary customer service. Here you will also find the Trees Bar, the perfect spot for drinks and cocktails in a relaxed and sophisticated environment.
Sport is very important to people in Ferriby, especially their football club, North Ferriby AFC, which won the FA Trophy Final at Wembley Stadium during 2014-15. Then there’s North Ferriby Cricket Club, three tennis courts and a newly built skate park, offering a range of sports and fitness opportunities for residents of all ages.
The playing fields and Anne Turner allotments are another key part of the village, functioning as both recreational amenities and unbroken skyline that looks stunning throughout the day and night. Not to mention the Yorkshire Wold Way National Trail and Trans Pennine Trail passing through the village, which present a scenic walk along the River Humber and spectacular views of the Humber Bridge.
When it comes to heritage and culture, North Ferriby is linked through the Twinning Association with Le Pellerin, a French village on the estuary of the Loire. Meanwhile, the village church dates back to the mid-nineteenth century and has a unique spire, leading to the granting of Grade II listed status and its recording in the National Heritage List for England. This is complemented by a range of homes and buildings old and new, which unite to make North Ferriby a truly delightful place to live.
