About Humber Bridge Country Park
Humber Bridge Country Park is a beautiful 48 acre wood with open meadows and wildlife ponds and so more. The majestic chalk cliffs which surround the park on three sides and look like they are snow-covered give rise to the park's local name of Little Switzerland. The tree-covered chalk terraces of the old chalk quarry offer dramatic views over the River Humber and towering Humber Bridge. One of the nice walking trails and also a good place to spend some leisure time.
