Though far smaller now than neighbouring Hull, which it abuts, Hessle (locally pronounced Hezzle) predates that city. The Angles called it Hoesellea, the Normans who displaced them Hase, the root of the name being Hazel. Situated on the north bank of the Humber, it is not surprising that the town has historic links to the sea. Shipbuilding was for centuries a major part of the local economy, but that ceased in the last quarter of the 20th century as Far Eastern and East European competitors undercut British yards. A more romantic tie to the oceans lies in the story of Algernon Henry Wilson Barkworth, a local landowner and JP from a shipping family, who survived the sinking of the Titanic, living until 1945 when he was 80. One local legend unrelated to matters nautical is the story of Joan Stuteville, who in medieval days introduced the side-saddle riding method for ladies. With a population of just under 15,000 at the 2001 census, Hessle is big enough to have its own schools, a shopping area in the centre (known as The Square), and it has an ancient church, All Saints, part of which dates from the 13th century, but with the majority much altered and added to in Victorian times. The greatest sight in the town though is surely the magnificent Humber Bridge. Some suggest it was built for political rather than practical reasons, but whatever the case it is a stirring structure, gracefully linking East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire. As well as being the end point of the Humber Bridge, Hessle is the start for the Wolds’ Way, one of the lesser known national trails, winding across the Yorkshire Wolds all the way to Filey
