Cleethorpes Train Station.
|"Station Approach", the clock tower dates back to the Victorian times, when the railway first came |
to Cleethorpes. It's a well known landmark in Cleethorpes.
|Beach attractions seen as you enter the station|
|Although there are 4 platforms this goes back to busier times when there was a double|
track leading into Cleethorpes. It's now just a single track up to Grimsby. The track brings
visitors in right along the promenade, very close to the beach.
|"The Number One" pub on No 1 platform.|
|This is "The Number Two" pub but is locally called "under the clock" as it sits directly|
below the station clock.
|Thousands of people once came to Cleethorpes by train in the heyday of the seaside rersorts|
and this would be were they spilled out, straight onto the promenade and beach.
|Outside the station, on the other side of the "Number One" the building has seen better days|
but is undergoing a face-lift at the moment. See the next image.
|Renovations taking place at "The Number One" pub. The train station can be seen in the distance.|
|The view that thousands of visitors would have seen when leaving for home after a holiday at|
Cleethorpes. Years ago it would have been a steam loco waiting to take them home, happy days.
