Description

The town was created by the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway Company from nothing and it rose to become the world's premier fishing port. But, for reasons beyond its control, its importance has dramatically diminished over the last 50 years. The fish that landed here fed the nation, and ancillary industries that sprang up in the town resulted in "Made in Grimsby" being a byword for quality. But times have changed, and the townspeople have had to deal with the declining local economy. Peter Chapman's account of Grimsby's remarkable recent history looks at the rise and demise of this Lincolnshire town and the people who made it great and who have now departed the scene.
