Hildred’s Hotel was the second hostelry to be built in Skegness – the first being the Vine Hotel. But before it was named Hildred’s, after the proprietor, Joseph Hildred, it was known as the New Hotel.
Below is an advertisement for the New Hotel, placed in a Derby newspaper in 1834 by Joseph Hildred:
