A fine, mostly sunny day today, windy still but dry. Today we are going to pay a visit to Saltfleet and see if we can get out onto the beach. According to Mr OS Saltfleet beach is accessible across the marsh and is a safe area in the marshlands and mudflats from Threddlethorpe to the south and Humberston Fitties to the north. We park up outside one of the several holiday parks in the village and follow a footpath towards the sea, however….
There is rather a lot of water around and no clear path across the marshland from here, so we follow a dryish sandy path along the shoreline for maybe a mile or so until we reach the banks of Saltfleet Haven, a raised area of dunes and attempt to follow that path out to the sea.
However before we reach the sea the path fizzles out and the way becomes increasingly slippery and wet, coupled with the fact that we can’t see anyone ahead or actually know whether it is safe to continue (though Mr OS does not mark this area as a Danger Zone) we decided to turn back. Instead we find a sandy spot in the dunes to play ball and sit awhile to admire the view…
After a time we follow the path along Saltfleet Haven inland and meander our way back to the car through this rather quaint village.
How fab is this Windmill House?
