The bustling port town of Blyth has a rich maritime heritage, with the port dating back to the 12th century. Although shipbuilding, once a major industry in the town, has now vanished, the port still plays an integral role in the Uk’s newspaper industry, overseeing the import of materials from Scandinavia. Commercial regeneration developments since the 1990s have revitalised the town, bringing more high-street brands to the town centre. Located just 13 miles north of Newcastle, Blyth offers an excellent base for commuters into the city and families wanting a seaside residence. Properties for sale include spacious semi-detached and detached family homes.
