Title: Lincshore '97 : an environmental statement
Author: National Rivers Authority Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
The beaches and sea defences between Mablethorpe and Skegness on the Lincolnshire coast provide flood protection to a large area of low lying coastal plain with residential, commercial, industrial and agricultural interests. The beaches, which are used extensively, are an important recreational and amenity resource. Many of the coastal towns are popular holiday resorts. The coastline also includes sites of special nature conservation value such as Gibraltar Point National Nature Reserve and areas of archaeological interest. The shoreline comprises extensive sand and shingle beaches crossed by numerous timber groynes. The beach is backed by extensive lengths of seawalls of varying designs interspersed with dune revetted systems.
