Labelled as Britain’s most inland port, the port is protected by the river to the west by the marshy ground to the north and south, and guarded by the high land to the east. During the 17th and 18th century, the industrialised midlands used Gainsborough to import and export extensively. Nowadays, very few vessels sails as far down the River Trent as Gainsborough as the majority of pilots are now available from ABP in Hull.
