Cleethorpes Station.

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.
