Tetney to Cleethorpes Walk

Posted 11/9/2016

Well in stark contrast to last year's Cleethorpes walk, yesterday's walk was a rather wet affair with constant rain, which was at times torrential.


It was a late start to the walk thanks to our train being delayed, which resulted in us missing our bus and delayed the walk by an hour.

We walked out from Tetney on paths alongside the Louth Canal to Tetney Lock and stopped for a beer at the Crown & Anchor allowing a heavy rain shower to pass.

We continued, seaward turning north to follow the coastline towards Humberston and finally to Cleethorpes.

A beer in Willies pub & brewery is always welcome, especially after a wet walk, fish and chips followed before finally a beer in the Swashbuckle Tavern before catching our train home.

A wet day all in all for our party of 20 who attended this walk and despite the conditions, we laughed constantly throughout the walk's deluge and general mayhem.

A train party en route to Cleethorpes with copious amounts of fizz and nibbles helped us all celebrate Diane Marshall's birthday, it was great to see that DVWG virtually had their own carriage !!

Finally a well done to Emily Kirk who clocked up 50 miles YTD on this walk. It is also worth mentioning that Diane and Julie have requested a Cleethorpes walk be planned annually from now on, watch out for some variants in walking in this area in the years to come.
