At the start of the 19th Century, Blyth’s waterborne traffic vastly expanded and the breakwater was rebuilt in 1822.
By this point, three ship building yards had been established and the construction of the Blyth and Tyne Railway from 1849 allowed coal shipments to quickly expand.
The Blyth Harbour and Dock Company was created in 1854, but with need for further expansion, it was replaced by a bill of parliament given Royal Assent on 19 June 1882, which constituted the current Blyth Harbour Commission.
This allowed additional financing to be raised, for construction of the South Harbour.
In 1906 the East Breakwater was extended by 300m and the Blyth East Pier light or Harbour Light was opened a year later in 1907.
