Grimsby’s development as a fishing port in the late 19th century was astounding. From the 1850s until 1891, its fleet expanded from 1 vessel to 800. The arrival of the railway in 1848 had much to do with the town’s success, making it easier to transport goods to and from the port.
Part of Grimsby’s huge fleet of sailing trawlers can be seen here, along with a few steam vessels. Although Grimsby was never a seaside resort, the neighbouring town of Cleethorpes attracted tourists from the East Midlands from the mid-19th century.
