Chapel St Leonards
Chapel St Leonards
The village of Chapel St Leonards, known locally as just "Chapel", is a few miles north of Skegness on the Lincolnshire coast and is now part of the huge Skegness holiday area. This photograph was taken from the top of the pullover and looks down from the sea bank to the area of tourist shops, arcades and cafes.

The term 'pullover' stems from the days when it was commonplace to offload goods from ships beached on the shore onto horse-drawn carts. An extra horse was needed to pull the fully laden cart over the sea defence bank.
