Description and Travel

This village and parish are on the south side of the Humber River, just across the river from Kingston Upon Hull. Five miles to the east is Barton upon Humber and four miles to the south is the village of Ulceby. About six miles to the south is the Humberside International Airport.

Goxhill is a fair-sized parish, covering 5860 acres of land, more or less, and it includes the hamlet of Littleworth about a mile east of the village, where the remains of Goxhill Priory (established circa 1185) can be found, and the little hamlet of Goxhill Ferry near the river. The Skitter Sand silt bed sits on the river bank where the river turns from an easterly flow to a southeasterly run. The land is low and sometimes marshy, but the soil is rich and fertile.
