Skegness and its roots by Betty Kirkham
A little piece of history - it is known that Skegness has been occupied since before Roman times. Roman pottery can be found today on the shore, it makes a change from collecting sea shells! Salt was manufactured along much of the low lying coast of Lincolnshire in Roman times and evidence of their working sites and even artifacts bearing their fingerprints can still be found today.
Visiting Skegness on the Lincolnshire Seaside became ever more popular over the years though at first only the better off people were able to take advantage of the facilities provided in Skegness. In the 1870's the Earl of Scarborough, landowner of Skegness at that time, decided to improve the town and with estate agent V.Tippet plans were drawn up for new streets and houses which extended to what is now Scarborough Avenue.
Just up the coast from Skegness is the tranquil town of Mablethorpe which is perfect for a day out with the family. In Mablethorpe you can visit the Sea Sanctuary, take a walk on the beaches, shop till you drop and much more. If you are more of a thrill seaker then why not Visit Cleethorpes in 2014 which lies just 20 miles further up the coast and has a wealth of attractions such as Pleasure Island theme park.
