Demolition of the Moat House Skegness

Demolition of an Old Building

One of the oldest buildings in this town known as “Skegness House” and situate in Drummond Road, was sold by auction by Mr GH Cash on Monday afternoon last, and in the course of the next few days will be razed to the ground.
It may not generally be known that Alfred Tennyson, the present poet-laureate, once stayed in this house.
This was some years ago and long before Skegness occupied the prominent position it now does as one of the favourite watering-places of our coast.
