Aerial view of the Humber Bridge
The first thing I always want to know when I see anything about great engineering or any natural beauty spot, is where is it in the world. To help you I have put a series of maps so you can find out for your self. On the north bank it is Kingston Upon Hull, or Hessle and on the south bank it is Barton on Humber. The bridge is named after the River Humber which it spans and it is the southern boundary of the East Riding Of Yorkshire and the northern boundary of North Lincolnshire in England. UK. The picture is taken from the south side of the bridge.
