History of Hull, Yorkshire, the Humber and Lincolnshire. Myths, legends and stories from the past.


Hello and thankĀ  you for visiting the East by Northeast blog.

This site tells stories from the history of Hull, East Yorkshire and the Humber area, in the United Kingdom, and delves into myths, legends and mysteries.

It is not an attempt to write a general or detailed history – there are people far better placed to do that – but to highlight and celebrate some of the more off-beat, quirkier and long-forgotten tales from this corner of the world.

We would be pleased to receive any feedback, suggestions or contributions. And while we strive to ensure all the information we publish is accurate to the best of our knowledge, we would be happy to correct any inaccuracies.

It is just a hobby though, so please do bear with us if we take a few days to reply.
