River Hull - South of Drypool Bridge
River Hull - South of Drypool Bridge
This stretch of river was the ancient heart of the mediaeval city of Hull. The city was located on both banks, and was protected by a wall. Commercial activity on this stretch of water made Hull one of the wealthiest cities in England in the 18th Century.

Castle Street swing bridge, and beyond that the tidal barrier are noted features.

The vessel permanently moored on the west bank is the Arctic Corsair, built in Beverley in 1960, and was the last of the Hull "side winders". She is now part of the Transport Museum.
