The Half Way, Hessle Road

27 Aug

That’s half way between Hessle and Hull. As a crow flies it’s about four and a half miles from the centre of old town Hull to Hessle’s bustling heart so maybe it’s five or so miles on the ground.  A fair walk but hardly exhausting. Nevertheless you’d need some refreshment if going to either destination, and if overcome by dread or fatigue you could rest up at the Half Way Hotel.  This place, by the look of it built in the first half of the 19th century when Hessle Road was a turnpike and ran through open fields, is no longer a hotel but still refreshes so I’m told. The large mural I showed the other day is on the far side.

    A neat looking sign for the establishment.
