East Halton

Description and Travel

This village and parish are on the south side of the Humber River, almost due south from Kingston Upon Hull. Seven and a half miles to the east is Barton upon Humber and down the coast is Grimsby. The parish to the north-west is Goxhill. To the south lies North Killingholme civil parish.

The village of East Halton lies about a mile from the Humber and can be reached by taking the A180 trunk road and turning north onto the A160 and turning off at South Killingholme. In White's 1872 Directory, the village is described as "widely-scattered". A small creek runs along the north edge of the parish out to the Humber, called Halton Skitter. The Skitter Sand silt bed runs along the river bank. The land is low and sometimes marshy, but the soil is rich and fertile. East Halton is a small parish, covering about 3,920 acres of land (3,321 in 1911).

Make sure you are researching the right place. There is a Halton East in North Yorkshire and a Halton in Lancaster and in other places around England. If you are planning a visit:
