Blyth South Pier

Blyth South Pier.
Blyth is one of the oldest ports in Northumberland, first being mentioned in
1446 as a natural anchorage for shipping. From the Middle Ages it has
been associated with the export of salt, coal and corn. The river and port of
Blyth therefore formed a valuable part of the estates belonging to the
Bishops of Durham and, as their economic potential emerged, they
changed hands a number of times. In the 15th Century, the Delavals
owned Blyth in addition to large swathes of Seaton Valley, however they
sold the estates at the beginning of the 18th Century,
Today the south pier is known for its fishing, Cod & Mackrel are caught in abundance.
