Solicitors in Grimsby

Grimsby is a seaport town situated on the estuary of the Humber River in Lincolnshire with a population of around 90,000 inhabitants. The town is thought to be named after its founder; a Danish fisherman named Grim and is believed to date back to the 9th century AD, although there is some evidence of a Roman settlement at the same site a few centuries earlier. The town lies on a site known as The Haven, a good place for boats to shelter from North Sea storms, and is well located for access to the busy fishing grounds nearby.

Grimsby’s economy

The economy of Grimsby is linked to its seaport and the fishing industry, which has given the area much of its wealth. At its peak in the 1950s the port at Grimsby was the largest and busiest fishing port in the world. Today its significance is mostly for the import of fish from other countries, which are traded at the UK’s largest fish market, still sited in Grimsby. Despite the decline of its importance as a fishing port, food and fish remain at the heart of the local economy. Grimsby is the site of the one of the largest fish processing centres in Europe, with Young’s Seafoods remaining one of the area’s major employers. The Port of Grimsby remains the UK’s largest by tonnage.
