One of the contributors to the Bygone Beachcombers project is Doreen Tyson. She has been invaluable in researching the history of Cleethorpes for us and bringing information together from many sources. One thing Doreen has done is collate a timeline of lots and lots of key dates in the history of the resort. And with a bit of technical work we’ve put an interactive timeline together on our Bygone Beachcombers website so that you can explore the history of the area too.
Take a look here. Start zooming in and out, scrolling around and generally finding out what was happening when.
Of course this timeline will be a ‘work in progress’. We’ll keep correcting it and adding to it and in due course we’ll be adding images and links and more. If you know of anything we’ve missed or got wrong then please drop us a line via firstname.lastname@example.org.
