This is intended as a web site for the whole community and it will be managed and kept up to date by the Parish Clerk. We would welcome suggestions and ideas about how it might be improved and what other things you would like to see on the site.
South Ferriby is known locally as one of the “Low Villages” nestling at the bottom of a chalk escarpment, where the chalk meets the clay to give a plentiful water supply. It also marks the point where the Lincolnshire Wolds come to the Humber Estuary and as the name suggests it is the southern site of a former ferry across the estuary to North Ferriby. It has a population of around 600.
South Ferriby was once two villages, Ferriby Sluice with its strong connections to brick manufacturing and other activities on the Ancholme River and South Ferriby itself, a strong farming community, with two farms that are still operational. Added to this the village now has a General store and Post Office, garage, and two Public Houses. It also boasts a splendid new primary school which serves those living in the immediate vicinity.
Employment is much diminished from the past and it is mainly a dormitory village for those who work in nearby towns. The village is popular with people looking to enjoy a rural setting with magnificent wildlife and enjoyable walks whilst remaining close to excellent road and rail links.
