Grimsby and Cleethorpes Tourist Information, by Leona Brown
Grimsby is most known as a fishing town, its founder of which the word Grimsby comes from was a fisherman named Grim. He first came to Grimsby from Denmark. When he arrived his task was to murder Prince Havelock. Grim eventually could not bring him self to kill the Prince but later found he could not return back to Denmark. So he decided to stay on the coast, where his home was soon to be known as Grimsby.
Grimsby is also known for its history of the men who went through appalling conditions which is what brings our fish in the town today, in the 1950's Grimsby became one of the world's largest fishing ports who so many men risked their lives for.
