Christian Nock who is walking around Britain’s coastline stopped off in Mablethorpe on Sunday (June 16) where a huge welcome awaited him alongside a few unique surprises along the way.
After town crier Roy Palmer made a proclamation in Christian’s honour, he then went on to walk a further 60 yards with local hero Jamie Bishop who predominantly depends on a wheelchair.
But he mustered the strength and determination to walk with Christian.
As two heroes walked side by side, a very emotional moment was had by many as tears were shed in pure pride for the mark in history that was made.
But as Christian spoke to Mablethorpe Leader reporter Chloe West, he just wanted to take the time to give the people of Mablethorpe a special message.
