Description - The Lincolnshire Seaside by Winston Kime

The Lincolnshire coast has been part of the British seaside experience since the railways opened up the area to holidaymakers in the late nineteenth century. Coastal resorts that in the eighteenth century were only for the gentry were transformed into towns that catered for mass tourism, enjoying their heyday in the 1920s and 1930s. Even today, though, beyond the popular beaches there is a rural and unspoiled coastline - one of the county's greatest landscapes. Winston Kime has spent most of his long life on the Lincolnshire coast, and here records its history. Focusing not only on resorts such as Skegness, Mablethorpe and Cleethorpes, as well as all the smaller holiday spots, he also describes the never-ending struggle with the sea, the role of smugglers and wreckers, transport in the area, shanty towns of the 1920s, Billy Butlin's legacy, social and economic development, and much more. Profusely illustrated, this new book will appeal to Lincolnshire residents and visitors alike.
