Crossing the Humber by Foot

Winteringham Local History and Genealogy

The Humber - Crossing by Foot!  With thanks to Ken Jacobs, Sandra Clayton, “Britain from Above,” the Scunthorpe Telegraph

Crossing the Humber by Foot (Don’t try this at home ... or on the River!)

When Lord Noel Buxton walked across the Humber from Brough to Whitton Ness in 1953, his aim was to test whether the Romans could have forded the River, as well as, or instead of, using a ferry.


Lord Noel Buxton’s departure and the early part of his walk are recorded from the air on the Britain from Abive website.  To see the photos click on the link above.  Once on that site, if you enter the search term “Winteringham” in the search box, you will see all nine photographs in the series.
