The town was founded in 1790 on the north side of the Waterway, from which it takes its name.
Designed to a grid pattern, it was originally intended by the founder, Sir William Hamilton,
to be a whaling centre, though by 1800 it was developing as a Royal Navy dockyard which it
remained until the dockyard was transferred to Pembroke in 1814. It then became a commercial
dock, with the focus moving in the 1960s, after the construction of an oil refinery built by
the Esso Company, to logistics for fuel oil and liquid gas. By 2010 the town's port has become
the fourth largest in the United Kingdom in terms of tonnage, and plays an important role
in the United Kingdom's energy sector with several oil refineries and one of the biggest LNG terminals in the world.
