Jointly organised by the Humber and Humber local networks.

About this event

Grimsby Ice Factory was built in 1901 to provide ice for the town’s flourishing fishing industry and the ready availability of vast quantities of ice played a major part in making Grimsby home to the world’s premier fishing fleet. With the introduction of modern techniques and the decline in fishing the factory closed in 1990 and became derelict. The significance of this Grade II* listed building today is that it is the last surviving example of industrial-scale ice-making with its equipment still in situ. It was the biggest of its kind in the world. The talk charts the history of the building, illustrates its equipment and describes the Great Grimsby Ice Factory Trust’s plans for its future.


7:00 for 7:30pm
