The Grimsby of today is in stark contrast to the days when its fleet numbered more than 700 sea going fishing vessel's, and even more with the time when it was under the rule of invading Danes. However, little is known of this time save for the 14th-century, Lay of Havelock the Dane. This legend recalls how Havlok, son of a murdered Danish King, was pushed out to sea in a boat after his father's death. He is said to have been rescued by a humble fisherman named Grim. Later, when the boy grew up he regained his father's kingdom, bestowed riches upon his rescuer, who used his new found wealth to found the port of Grimsby. Whatever you choose to believe, this is a fascinating bit, which might be purely a flight of someone's imagination, or fact. For centuries ships have sailed from North Sea ports into Grimsby. It was granted a charter in 1202, and during the second half of the 20th-century 56 percent of all plaice and more than 40 percent of turbot for England and Wales was landed here. Then the Fish Dock was the largest in the World. These days Grimsby continues to operate as a major port, with routes linking England to mainland Europe. The ports location in a prime spot along the Humber River makes it ideal for easy access for the Baltic and Scandinavia. It offers the most modern storage facilities, covered and uncovered. Grimsby Docks lit up against the back ground of a night sky present the visitor with a dazzling dock-side spectacle. Daytime is equally impressive as you gaze at historic dock footbridges and newly refurbished warehouses and mills. There are footpaths to wander whilst watching an endless procession of Humber ferries. In St.James's Square there is an evocative reminder of Grimsby's fishing heritage. A beautiful statue of a fisherman commemorates all those who lost their lives in search of the fruits of the sea. St.James's is a beautiful 13th-century Church which is cruciform in shape, and of cathedral-like proportions. It has wonderful stained glass windows, the finest example being the window in the Lady Chapel which features the "Magnificat" or Mary's Song as it is sometimes known. Other glass depicts, creation, celebration and angels. The font is the oldest of the church treasures, there are attractive wooden choir stalls, and beautiful stone carving to the fine stone arches. There are many memorials to see and a lovely carved lectern. The church is found in St.James's Square adjacent to the Fishermen's Memorial and a modern day hotel. Most of Grimsby town is from the 19th-century. The Town Hall of 1863 dominates Town Hall Square. This is a lively town where old and new mingle comfortably side by side. It has many interesting places to visit including Dock Tower, Fish Docks and Welholme Galleries. It offers a multi-cultural experience, with restaurants of a variety of cuisines, pubs, inns, lively markets and excellent shopping facilities. Grimsby is next to the bustling resort town of Cleethorpes.
