Visit Mablethorpe and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Mablethorpe, Lincolnshire. The principal attraction of this small holiday resort a few miles North of Skegness is the invigorating sea air sweeping in from the East. For this reason, and because the groynes costing nearly £2 million have provided a splendid beach of firm, golden sand, the combined watering-places of Mablethorpe and Sutton on Sea are especially good for children throughout the season.
Like many other little townships of Lincolnshire its roots go back to medieval times. The only church surviving the onslaught of the sea is St Mary's, a rather squat building with a steep pitched roof which is higher than the tower. The south doorway and the nave arcades are 13th-century, but the main fabric dates chiefly from 1714. Among other medieval relics is a 14th-century tomb with a broken helmet hanging above it, said to be that of a knight slain in a duel at Earl's Bridge 2 miles away. His opponent also died in the encounter and is similarly represented by a stone figure in the church at Maltby-le-Marsh nearby.
