Cleethorpes Seafront.

 A few photo's taken in November 2023.

Apologies for more photo's of Cleethorpes Seafront.  Although I'm getting out a lot more now I haven't had time to edit my latest pics and I've had this post ready to go for a while.


A general view over the central promenade.


We often see a tribute to someone on the railings or one of the seats along the prom.

Breakwater at low tide.  People often say the tide never comes in at Cleethorpes, but
of course it does, twice daily.  They just happens to be unlucky when visiting.

A Little Egret foraging in one of the pools left behind as the tide receeds.

Another tribute.

We have some recycling bins on the seafront, this one is for plastics.

Brighton Slipway, named as it is opposite Brighton Street nearby.  To the left is the site
of the new RNLI lifeboat station.  Work has been stopped for quite a while now as the
original contractors went into liquidation.  A new contractor took over and work should
recommence again soon.

Despite the cold weather lots of people out in the fresh air.

One of the oldest pubs in Cleethorpes, always popular with visitors & residents.

Memorial statue in Pier Gardens in memory WW2 airmen
that flew out of North Coates RAF station a few miles away.

This is the Memorial Gate, commemorating all branches of the armed forces.

  1. Another lovely set of photos, David. I really like the look of Cleethorpes, especially through your eyes. That pier is magnificent, and I love the wooden breakwater, which is so similar to ours. As for the tributes, they are very touching.

  2. Thank you Val. The pier once had a walkway extending 100yards out into the sea but it was demolished during the war to prevent enemy Landings on it. It has had various uses over the yearsand is now owned by "Pappas", a national group of fish & chip shops.
