Axenstrasse Roof Demolished

COMING DOWN: East Lindsey District Council is continuing works to redevelop the Fairy Dell Paddling Pool on Skegness’s Southern Foreshore. Part of the redevelopment scheme is to remove the roof from the Axenstrasse. The covered walkway had become a gathering place for drug taking and other anti-social behaviour, opening it to the sky is intended to make it less attractive for such activities.
