This fish processing and smoking factory was built in the late 19th century. It is one of an important series of small fish processing and smoking factories at Grimsby, dating from the period when Grimsby was one of the foremost fishing centres in the world. This factory, which is still in operation, is the only example here with a square-section smoking tower with a single cowl and its design is believed to be unique.
