Roman Relics Unearthed

ROMAN remains over 2,000 years old were discovered on the site of the new Skegness Water Leisure Park being developed off Walls Lane by Ellis Brothers in 1990.
The relics were unearthed when work started on the digging of the main dyke into the site’s activity lake.
When workmen reached a depth of two metres the legs of salt trays, believed to have been used by the Romans to extract salt from the sea, were found.
Hogsthorpe based historian and archaeologist Mrs Betty Kirkham said that similar remains had been unearthed along the Lincolnshire coast for a number of years.
