Meridian

On the coastal footpath just south of Cleethorpes at Humberston, a metal rail is inlaid into the path and a globe and signpost stand (giving distances to various global destinations). This is the prime meridian line, which was established in 1851 by Sir George Airy at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich. From this point it travels north across the Humber estuary and into the East Riding of Yorkshire where it travels across country for a number of miles before entering the North Sea near the village of Tunstall. From there it continues across the sea until it reaches the pole.

The rail denoting the meridian line can be seen just below the shadow of the signpost in my photograph.

Hotdog

Every trip I make to a seaside town I invariably come back with a shot of some piece of street furniture advertising typical fare for the location. Sometimes it’s a huge ice-cream, occasionally a donut, and this time a hotdog AND an ice-cream. If anyone has been with this blog for a while, or has looked at my older posts, you may recall another photo of this same fella from 2017.

Papa’s

In business since 1966. this is apparently the largest fish & chip restaurant in the world and now resides in premises on Cleethorpes pier. The fish and chips were good. 🙂

Hats & Tiaras

A quickie post today as I’ve been out all day for work, so here’s a snap I took of two ladies browsing the hats (and tiaras?) in a shop window in Cleethorpes.

Sea defences

Before the day warmed up, it was quite cold and grim looking at the north end of Cleethorpes promenade. This is looking north towards Grimsby (the harbour tower is just visible at the right of the horizon besides the large building. It wasn’t just me taking photographs though. Look!
