Hessle Foreshore (circa 1980)

Hessle foreshore has been a place of leisure and recreation long before the Humber Bridge Country Park opened in 1986.

During the Edwardian period the waterfront was crowded by locals on public holidays, just as it is today. In the 1970s many came here to see the Humber Bridge under construction and since the opening of the bridge in 1981 many more have been to view this marvel of modern engineering.
