As blustery winds spread along the coast, floods of residents gathered at Mablethorpe’s promenade to see the grand unveiling of a commemorative memorial rock.

Thursday, January 31, marked the 60th anniversary of the 1953 floods where Mablethorpe and Sutton on Sea were amongst the worst affected communities, with 42 lives lost.

As a lasting memorial that will stand the test of time, a six tonne Norwegian granite rock with commemorative plaque has been placed on Mablethorpe’s North Promenade and was blessed with water from the North Sea.
