The Butlin Luxury Holiday Camp opened in 1936 and cost £100,000.

It is sited close to the beach and conveniently alongside the A52 between Skegness and Mablethorpe.

The ballroom at Butlin's was an important centre of evening entertainment for the weekly visitors.

A view of the salterns exposed by the storm of 31 January 1953 on the beach near Butlin's Holiday Camp. These probably date from the Iron Age (800BC - 50B.C.)

The great storm surge of Jan 1953 scoured sand from the beach and exposed these regular lagoons in which sea water evaporated to provide salt.

The church of St Peter and St Paul in Ingoldmells is a pleasant surprise, surrounded as the area is by caravans and shops.

It dates from the thirteenth-century; the only later addition was a Decorated tower with a Perpendicular top.

The chancel was demolished in the early eighteenth-century by the incumbent who was unwilling to pay for its renovation.

Staffed during the summer months, visitors are given a warm welcome and a conducted tour.
