Tor Line’s first car ferry “Tor Anglia” launched October 20th 1965, this marks the start of a new car and freight service from Immingham for both travel industry and the public.
Our exhibition celebrates another vital part of the many and varied parts of Immingham’s history, the maiden voyage of the “Tor Anglia” took place in spring 1966,47 years ago.

Established in 1970 and now based in the Immingham Civic Centre.
The Main theme in the museum is the story of the building of Immingham Dock and the involvement of the Great Central Railway.

Many of the displays feature railway memorabilia, photos and documents.
