National Fishing Heritage Centre

Located in Grimsby, the National Fishing Heritage Centre has recreated the authentic buildings of the old docklands area from the heyday of fishing. Included is a wet dock with a full size fishing vessel as its centrepiece.

The building is an interesting structural mix of steel frame, glulam timber, masonry and reinforced concrete thus requiring exceptional attention to detail by both BCAL and the architect.

The project has won numerous national awards and attracts more than 120,000 visitors a year.
