Immingham, or known to the locals are Ming-Ming or Ming, is a town in North East Lincolnshire on the Humber Estuary.
Immingham means 'Homestead' or 'village of Imma's people.' The surnames 'Imma' and 'Emma' have a larger population in this town, though they began to migrate to northern parts of Lincolnshire. The name is completely Old English, which is rare for surrounding areas in the country. This suggests that the town dates to before the Viking invasion on the town.
During the World Wars, this town played vital roles. In World War One, Immingham was one of the main submarine bases for the early submarines. In the Second World War, Immingham became the shore base for Lord Mountbatten, hosting his ship HMS Kelly. He lodged at the County Hotel, which still remains today.
