Mablethorpe, Storm on the seafront, 1953
Exceptionally strong winds and a very high tide on 31 January 1953 combined to produce a storm surge that broke through the sea defences along several stretches of the Lincolnshire coast.
Much of Mablethorpe was inundated by the sea and there were several deaths in the town and neighbouring Sutton on Sea.
The damage to property was considerable, as is apparent in this photograph of Quebec Road, Mablethorpe.
