  • Blyth (/ˈblaɪð/) is a town and civil parish in southeast Northumberland, England. It lies on the coast, to the south of the River Blyth and is approximately 13 miles (21 km) northeast of Newcastle upon Tyne. It has a population of about 37,000, as of 2011. The port of Blyth dates from the 12th century, but the development of the modern town only began in the first quarter of the 18th century. The main industries which helped the town prosper were coal mining and shipbuilding, with the salt trade, fishing and the railways also playing an important role. These industries have largely vanished, but the port still thrives, receiving paper and pulp from Scandinavia for the newspaper industries of England and Scotland. The town was seriously affected when its principal industries went into decline, and it has undergone much regeneration since the early 1990s. The Keel Row Shopping Centre, opened in 1991, brought major high street retailers to Blyth, and helped to revitalise the town centre. The market place has recently been re-developed, with the aim of attracting further investment to the town. The Quayside has also seen much redevelopment and has been transformed into a peaceful open space, the centrepiece of which is a sculpture commemorating the industry that once thrived there. On the opposite side of the river are the nine wind turbines of the Blyth Harbour Wind Farm, which were constructed along the East Pier in 1992. They were joined in 2000 by Blyth Offshore Wind Farm, which consisted of two turbines situated 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) out to sea. These were the first two offshore wind turbines in the UK. These wind turbines were all decommissioned, with the final two being removed in 2019. A new wind farm further off the coast, composed of five turbines, was commissioned in 2017. Blyth is also home to the non-League football club Blyth Spartans, famed for their 1978 "giant-killing" feats in the FA Cup. (en)
  • Blyth [ˈblaɪð] ist eine Kleinstadt im englischen Northumberland. Die an der Mündung des in die Nordsee gelegene Stadt war einst eine bedeutende Hafen- und Werftstadt. Sie war Verwaltungssitz des 2009 aufgelösten Distrikts Blyth Valley. Blyth war einst ein Streckenendpunkt der North Eastern Railway, ein bedeutender Exporthafen für Kohle (insbesondere aus dem 30 Meilen entfernten Kohlerevier von Ashington) und ein Hafen der Royal Navy sowie wichtiger Werftstandort. Beispielsweise wurde der erste britische Flugzeugträger, das Flugzeugmutterschiff HMS Ark Royal (1914), bei der Blyth Dry Docks & Shipbuilding Company durch Umbau gebaut. Die Stadt dient heutzutage auch als „Schlafstadt“ von Newcastle upon Tyne. Der erste Offshore-Windpark Europas wurde 2000 vor der Küste von Blyth in Betrieb genommen. Seit 1962 pflegt Blyth eine Städtepartnerschaft mit Solingen. (de)

  • Blyth è una cittadina e parrocchia civile nel sud-est della contea Northumberland, in Inghilterra. Si trova sulla costa, a sud del fiume Blyth e a 21 chilometri (13 miglia) a nord est di Newcastle upon Tyne. Secondo il censimento del 2011 ha una popolazione di 37 339 abitanti. Il porto di Blyth risale al XII secolo, ma lo sviluppo della città moderna è iniziata solo nel primo quarto del XVIII secolo. I principali settori che hanno contribuito alla prosperità della città erano l'estrazione del carbone e la costruzione navale, il commercio del sale, e la pesca; anche le ferrovie giocavano e giocano tutt'oggi un ruolo importante. Queste industrie sono in gran parte scomparse, ma il porto prospera ancora: continuano infatti le spedizioni dalla Scandinavia di carta e cellulosa, che forniscono le principali industrie di giornali in Inghilterra e Scozia. Il futuro della città è stato seriamente compromesso quando le sue industrie principali hanno cominciato a vivere una fase di declino. Il centro commerciale Keel Row, inaugurato nel 1991, ha portato i principali rivenditori della zona a Blyth, e ha contribuito a rivitalizzare il centro della città. Il mercato è stato recentemente ri-sviluppato, con l'obiettivo di attrarre ulteriori investimenti per la città. La cittadina è anche la sede del Blyth Spartans Association Football Club. (it)
