Skegness: Famous landmarks


Last month, we joined some friends in going to the seaside resort town of Skegness. We stayed in the town centre where we saw a couple of its famous landmarks.

The town's prominent clock tower (top photo), located at the end of Lumley Road, is the most well-recognised landmark of Skegness. It was built in 1898-99 and funded through public subscription.


Beyond the clock tower, Festival Tower Esplanade leads to the beach. On one side, you will find the statue of the Jolly Fisherman (above photo) in the Compass Gardens. The Jolly Fisherman is the town's famous mascot, which is designed by John Hassall in 1908 for the Great Northern Railway.
