On the north east coast of England, in Northumberland is the port of Blyth, situated around thirteen miles north-east of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. The town and its surrounding lands were the property of the Radcliffe family, the Earls of Derwentwater, until 1715 when the third and final Earl was one of the peers executed after the Jacobite uprising and the property and its lands confiscated. Mathew White bought it in 1723 with his brother-in-law Richard Ridley before buying nearby Blagdon. The port of Blyth dates from the 12th century but development of the modern town did not start until a quay was erected for the shipment of coal during the 18th century when there were also saltpans producing more than one thousand tons of salt per year. The port prospered and a harbour and dock were formed. In 1855, 250,000 tons of coal were being exported which by 1900, had risen to 3 million. Shipbuilding did not become a major industry for Blyth until early in the 20th century when it grew to become one of the largest shipbuilding yards on the north-east coast building numerous ships for the Admiralty during both First and Second World Wars. The shipyards closed in 1967 leaving Blyth to concentrate on its fishing industry which further aided its development.
