Humberside was a non-metropolitan and ceremonial county in Northern England from 1 April 1974 until 1 April 1996. It was composed of land from either side of the Humber Estuary, created from portions of the East and West ridings of Yorkshire and Parts of Lindsey, Lincolnshire. The county council's headquarters were County Hall at Beverley, inherited from the East Riding, and its largest settlement and only city was Kingston upon Hull. The county stretched from Wold Newton in its northern tip, to a different Wold Newton at its most southern point.

It bordered North Yorkshire to the north and west, South Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire to the south-west, and Lincolnshire to the south. It faced east towards the North Sea. It was abolished on 1 April 1996, with four unitary authorities being formed: North Lincolnshire, North East Lincolnshire, Kingston upon Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire. The name has continued in use as a geographic term and in the names of institutions such as Humberside Police and Humberside Fire and Rescue Service.

Districts

The county was divided into nine non-metropolitan districts:

Abolition

Humberside was abolished in 1996. This resulted in four successor unitary authorities:

  • Kingston upon Hull
  • East Riding of Yorkshire: Beverley, East Yorkshire, Holderness, and northern Boothferry
  • North Lincolnshire: Glanford, Scunthorpe and southern Boothferry
  • North East Lincolnshire: Great Grimsby, Cleethorpes

There was some debate as to the fate of the Goole area which had been part of the West Riding prior to 1974). It was originally proposed that Goole should be incorporated in the Selby District of North Yorkshire but ultimately it was decided to associate it with the rest of North Humberside.
