Ferriby Sluice & the Humber Estuary.

Ferriby Sluice is situated at the point where the River Ancholme runs out into the Humber Estuary.  It's permanently manned by lock keepers as it's a busy lock for Keelboats and pleasure craft. 

My recent blog posts were all of images photographed during December 2018.  I don't know when I'll be able to get out to take new Pics so my next post may not be for some time. 

Low tide and the River Anchome is in flood as it runs out into the Humber Estuary
at Ferriby Sluice Lock pits.

On the bank of the Ancholme is the Ceemex Cement Plant.

Here, the River Ancholme runs into the Humber Estuary.  
The far bank is East Yorkshire

The Humber Estuary is an Internationally important site for migratory sea birds and at low tide
they can be seen in great numbers feeding on the mudflats on thousands of crustaceans. 

"The Hope & Anchor" is popular for the pleasure boats and visitors.

Tucked away in the reeds is this small cabin boat.  It's berthed in "South Drain".

Seen here from Ferriby, only a few miles east, is the Humber Bridge.
