About the Marina


This marina is situated at the mouth of the River Ancholme, a 25 mile long vale from the Lincolnshire Wolds which sluices out into the Humber. The quantity of water discharged is quite considerable and this is reflected by the wide and deep channel cut through the mud between the sluice and the Humber.

With a dusty cement factory right nextdoor to the marina and a high conveyor belt which passes the marina 40ft overhead, it doesn’t attract that many visitors despite being able to accommodate 100, boats plus 20 or so visiting vessels.

The small village of South Ferriby is situated 1 mile away and offers only a small general store. The marinas saving grace is the Hope and Anchor pub, a spacious but basic pub owned by a landlord who has a keen interest in boats. With a dinghy and a good supply of fuel, it's possible to reach the market town of Brigg - a round trip of 28 miles.
 

Marina Approaches


After the road suspension bridge, the South Channel of the River Humber has plenty of water, and the channel passing south of Reed’s Island always has deep water which gives guaranteed access to the Haven at Ferriby Sluice.

Reaching the lock pit from the South Channel initially requires a south easterly course taking care of the contours and high shoulders of the mud banks, and eventually curving round southwards as you approach the lock pit and keeping a boats length off the stone wall. When making the approach during springs, beware that the flood tide can reach 8 kts across the mouth of the Haven.
