About Blyth

Blyth is a town in Northumberland which relied on coal-mining, shipbuilding and fishing. Now it is a successful port, shipping paper and pulp from Scandinavia to newspaper industries in the UK, as well as being home to renewable energy sources. During both World Wars, its shipyards built ships for the Royal Navy including HMS Ark Royal in 1914.
