Grimsby has a long history that dates back to the Iron Age when it was first settled by the Celts. The ancient Roman town of Velleia was founded nearby in AD71 and there are numerous ruins dotted around the area showing signs of occupation from various different civilizations throughout history. Christianity arrived to Grimsby during medieval times, when St James' Church was built in 1150. From then onwards, Grimsby developed into an important port town thanks to its convenient location as well as its access to fishing grounds and other natural resources like coal. By 1205, it had become so influential that it was granted royal charter status by King John.

Throughout the centuries, Grimsby continued to thrive as a port town with major industries such as shipbuilding and fishing becoming dominant forces in its economy. It also became known for being a centre of excellence for engineering, particularly after World War II when it underwent extensive reconstruction work funded by government grants which saw old docklands transformed into modern industrial areas.

Today, Grimsby remains an important port town supplying fresh fish to local markets across Europe but its industry is now more diversified than ever before. It houses several large manufacturing plants producing everything from pharmaceuticals to green energy sources such as offshore wind turbines - all thanks to the incredible advancements made in technology over recent years; while at the same time further development projects are underway across sectors such as retail and leisure which serve only to strengthen its economy even further.

John Barker's law firm continues to remain at the heart of Grimsby's thriving business community helping both local businesses and individuals alike tackle any complex legal matters they may face head-on - providing tailor-made solutions backed up by years of experience.
