Hedon's ancient port heritage

Hedon is a small market town in East Yorkshire which is only six miles from the centre of Hull. Situated close to the River Humber, the town was one of the first ports in the area and was believed to have been particularly successful around the 12th century. These days it is perhaps best known for its parish church of St Augustine, an imposing Grade I listed building which overlooks the centre of the town.
