- Immingham -
Travel eight miles from Grimsby and you reach the town of Immingham.
Despite its small size, Immingham is a thriving industrial centre - home to a busy freight terminal and the fastest growing shipping port on the Humber Estuary.
However, visitors should look past the refineries, though they provide a strangely alluring site as you travel towards the town along the A180 - especially at night, and take time to explore and discover what Immingham has to offer.
The town has rapidly developed from its modest roots. Up until the end of the 19th Century Immingham was little more than a cluster of houses and smallholdings.
Now however, visitors will find pubs, clubs and societies, sports and recreational facilities as well as community centres and schools.
