We will introduce you to the remains of the early landscapes of the Cleethorpes water front and visit some of the close-to-shore exposures of a Bronze Age "submerged forest". There will also be chance to spot a number of ship wreck remains further out and discuss the tourist development of Cleethorpes in the 19th and 20th centuries along the promenade.
