Between the 18th and 19th century, goods ranging from bricks to barley were traded with inland, coastal and continental ports via the River Humber. These goods were transferred to and from sloops, keels, coasters and sprit-sail barges. Most of the trading ceased to exist after the Second World War but a small market boat was dedicated to the old 18th century tradition, and continued trading until the late 1950s. Currently, a small boat repair yard operates from the northern end of the creek.
A restoration project is underway to rejuvenate the area and re-establish its connectivity to the remainder of the River Humber. Further information can be found here.
