Description
  • This circular walk of 1.7 miles (2.7 km) starts with an uphill path from Cliff Road, by the foreshore.
  • Find the public footpath between Riverside Court and St Mary's Close and follow it up the steady rise to Redcliff Road where our route turns to the right.
  • Just past the house called Cheriton (No. 2 Redcliff Road), take the access on the left and cross the footbridge over the A63-Clive Sullivan Way, and the railway line.
  • At the other side continue straight along Station Road and follow it round to the right where it becomes Ferry Road.
  • Just after No.44, continue to another footbridge crossing the railway and A63 and descend the spiral at the far side.
  • You are now on Livingstone Road by  Hessle Haven, once a busy wharf with an active shipyard - Dunstans.
  • Follow the bank of the Haven and take the footpath at the start of the Yorkshire Wolds Way.
  • Continue along the foreshore path, now known as Jean's Walk, passing the recreation ground and the Wolds Way feature to return to the start.

Additional Information
In January 2005 a replica of an ancient boat set out in the shadow of the Humber Bridge to re-enact part of a 4,000 year old journey.  The boat, named 'Oakleaf' floated in the estuary just a short distance from the site where the oak timbers of 3 Bronze Age planked vessels were excavated at North Ferriby by amateur archaeologist Ted Wright between 1937 and 1963. 
The sail training ship Sir Winston Churchill was built in Dunstan's Shipyard on the Haven in 1966.
