Skeg­ness to Mablethorp­e

British Travel Journal - - ENGLAND'S COAST -

The big open skies and vast beaches of the Lin­colnshire coast­line have al­ways been a draw for walk­ers and artists. Now there's im­proved ac­cess along this 16 mile stretch, par­tic­u­larly with the new board­walks near the North Sea Ob­ser­va­tory with its nat­u­ral his­tory dis­plays, art space and café.

An­derby Creek Cloud Bar (no, you can't buy booze there) is the world's first ded­i­cated cloud ob­ser­va­tion plat­form where you can lie back and sort our your cir­rus from your cu­mu­lus. A sub­ma­rine for­est dat­ing from the Ne­olithic pe­riod is some­times on view near Mablethorp­e! The re­mains of this an­cient wood­land, which once stretched all the way from Lin­colnshire to the main­land of Europe, can be seen pok­ing up near the shore­line, es­pe­cially in win­ter.
