TA1827 : The Old Hedon Haven

taken 17 years ago, near to Hedon, East Riding of Yorkshire, Great Britain

The Old Hedon Haven
The Old Hedon Haven
This is the view looking eastwards just south of the farm at Hedon. The Haven was a navigable waterway from the River Humber some two miles to the west of here, making a Hedon a port long before Hull was. The Haven eventually silted up and was abandoned for shipping and later filled in completely in the late 1970s. There are plans to open it one day at a cost of about 17m+, but there would be many obstacles (politically, physically and financially) to overcome before this could ever happen.
