From Cleethorpes, through Grimsby, to Immingham: not the most glamorous of walks.

grimsby-fc.pngDespite this being a very industrial landscape, there was still plenty to see: the ironic "no ball games" notice on Grimsby FC's gates; the countless fish processing plants, the ever-present Grimsby Harbour Tower; the fields full of new cars, all with their windscreen wipers raised in salute.

grimsby-dock.pngWest of Grimsby we took to the concrete sea wall, looking at the industry which lines the coast here: a power station, plants making titanium dioxide (this one with significantly more scary warning signs), pharmaceuticals, polymers and performance products. If you want to play with chemicals for a living, Grimsby seems a surprisingly popular destination.
