AN EXHIBITION of the Oakleaf, a replica Bronze Age boat found in Ferriby and Classic Cars on the Riverside Walkway meadow.
North Ferriby Parish Council acquired this former landfill site in 1986, covering 22 acres. The flooded clay pits from the former brick and tile industry were used as a refuse tip with the exception of the pond to the east of Ings Field.
In the 1990’s the Riverside Walkway Committee developed the site to improve its landscaping, wildlife and recreational value, planting over 3000 trees. The area has a diversity of over 100 flower species at present. The Enchanted Woodland is an interesting copse of trees, attracting wild birds. Spy Hill Beacon is a scenic viewpoint. The two acre meadow is adjacent to the foreshore, and leads onto the Yorkshire Wolds Way National Trail, Trans Pennine Trail andBeverley 20.
The Humber Bridge can be reached by foot or cycle along a path approximately two miles long beside the Humber estuary. The Riverside Walkway is always open to the public.
