Ever fancied jumping out of a plane?
You can – and here in North Lincolnshire too! Skydive Hibaldstow offers you the chance to skydive from up to 15,000 feet, which is the highest in the country! After your briefing, you will make the jump securely attached to one of our highly experienced instructors and free-fall at 120mph for up to a minute!

In a superb natural setting, where the rivers Trent and Ouse join to form the Humber, Alkborough Flats is an exciting project, which helps prevent thousands of homes from flooding.
