Immingham past, present and future

[ April 12, 2022   //   ]

ABP has donated £10,000 to Immingham Museum which it is supporting through a new partnership.

The donation will allow Immingham Museum to invest in technology including an immersive video wall that will give visitors an experience of life on the port and a bird’s eye view from vessels entering the lock.

Regional director of ABP Humber Simon Bird, said: “ABP are proud to support the local community and we believe it’s important to give back when we can. The port of Immingham has long been a part of the history of the town, and they already have an impressive display of the port’s history. This partnership will allow them to go further and for us to strengthen our ties.”

Malcolm Cullum, chairman of trustees at Immingham Museum and Heritage Centre added: “Immingham Dock has been the making of our town and we look forward to not only showing the past but also look forward to the future.”

Immingham has the only accredited museum in North East Lincolnshire, and will be supported with a yearly financial contribution, loan of documents and other assets from ABP’s vast historic archive, support from ABP staff in a volunteering capacity, port tours, and strengthened outreach ties with schools including port visits.

Based in Immingham Civic Hub, the museum staffed by volunteers, opened in 1970 and its main theme is the history of the port of Immingham, and the Mayflower pilgrim connection. Entry to the museum is free and it is open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday, 1pm to 4pm. For more information on the museum visit:
