Kingston upon Hull, usually referred to as Hull, is a city in the traditional county of the East Riding of Yorkshire. It’s located primarily on the north side of the River Humber surrounding the junction with the River Hull. It lies 214 miles north of London, by road and 12 miles inland from the North Sea.
The city is built upon alluvial and glacial deposits which overlie chalk on very low lying land which are protected by flood barriers.
The River Humber, itself formed from the Rivers Trent from the Midlands and the Ouse from York, has acted as a gateway to the heart of England since Roman times.
The town of Hull was founded in the late 12th century by the monks of Meaux Abbey who needed a port from which to export their wool.
The town was first recorded 1193, although there is evidence of occupation in the area since the Neolithic period. The settlement developed around the successful trading port which by the mid 20th century had been replaced by fishing for more distant northerly waters. This declined markedly after the 1975/6 acceptance by the UK of Iceland’s self imposed 200 mile territorial waters limit.
