Geography

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

It is situated on the north bank of the Humber Estuary, approximately to the west of Hull city centre. To the north, atop a hill, lies Swanland via the B1231. South Ferriby is directly opposite the village, on the south bank of the Humber. North Ferriby is generally referred to as plain Ferriby by locals on the north bank, except where confusion might arise. Melton is close by to the west which is where the large South Hunsley School is.

North Ferriby lies in the constituency of Haltemprice and Howden, in 2003 cited as the 10th most affluent in the country.

From 1894 until 1935, North Ferriby was a civil parish in Sculcoates Rural District. On Sculcoates' abolition it was transferred to Beverley Rural District. With the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974, it became part of Humberside, and in 1996 the northern part of Humberside again became the East Riding of Yorkshire. Historically, North Ferriby was an ecclesiastical parish in the Hullshire Wapentake.
