River Freshney, Grimsby, Lincolnshire

River Freshney, Grimsby, Lincolnshire

The town of Grimsby stands on the banks of the River Freshney.

Originally it entered the tidal River Humber at Pyewipe, north west of Grimsby, but has been re-routed and now supplies Grimsby Docks.

There was an existing haven within the borough of Grimsby but this suffered greatly with silting problems so it was agreed to the diversion of the Freshney through the town to the haven.
