Over £133m has been committed by Linden Homes to improving local communities since 2010.
A thriving jewel in the crown of East Yorkshire is the village of North Ferriby – a wonderful location steeped in history yet boasting a true sense of community.
Just nine miles from the centre of Hull, historic North Ferriby nestles between the last slopes of the Yorkshire Wolds and the wide reaches of the Humber.
With a population of around 4,000, the village, with its attractive church and distinctive spire, is master of its own affairs. North Ferriby boasts the ever popular Duke Of Cumberland pub, the highly rated Medici Italian restaurant, fish and chip shop, newsagent, designer children’s clothes shop, chemist, estate agents, post office, village hall, parish hall, hairdressers and Co-Op convenience store at the heart of daily life.
From its highest point the village enjoys unrivalled panoramic views over the surrounding farmland, the river to the Humber Bridge and the northern sweep of the Lincolnshire Wolds.
Leisure and recreation opportunities feature highly in North Ferriby, with the village boasting a squash club, a riding for the disabled association (RDA) run by volunteers, a British Legion Social Club and further down to the river there are lovely walks along the banks of the Humber, with superb views of the river and the splendid Humber Bridge.
And to indulge in a spot of history, this walk will take you past the site where the famous Ferriby boats were found. In 1931, wooden planks belonging to an ancient boat were discovered by a local man on the shore of the Humber. Two further boats have since been discovered, with experts dating their origin to the Bronze Age. The Ferriby boats are the earliest known boats found in Europe. The Yorkshire Wolds Way National Trail and the Trans Pennine Trail long distance footpaths also pass through the village.
However, if you are choosing to venture out of North Ferriby, the nearby A63 provides a speedy and convenient route to the excellent facilities provided by Kingston-Upon-Hull (only nine miles away) and also links directly to the M62. The shopping and entertainment meccas of York, Leeds and Sheffield are only around 50 minutes drive away.
The village is served by Ferriby railway station, which is on the main-line from Hull to York, London, Leeds, Sheffield and Manchester.
Kingston upon Hull offers a delightful combination of old and new. Architecture spans the centuries, most notably along the cobbled streets and medieval walls of the historic Old Town, which contrasts with the modern sparkle of the Princes Quay Shopping Centre.
The Hull Marina provides and elegant focal point and is located a short walk from the city’s many commercial and historical attractions.
Hull’s renaissance is epitomised by The Deep, a multi-million pound landmark attraction which has spurred a revitalisation programme on both banks of the River Hull. The Deep’s iconic building is a world-class oceanographic discovery centre which has been dubbed the world’s only submarium. This stunning facility allows visitors to walk along the ocean floor in the world’s deepest viewing tunnel while Sand Tiger and Leopard Sharks glide overhead!
Continuing to build on the Linden Homes reputation, the Spire View development will offer a lifestyle to suit the pace of our residents’ busy working and family life.
