Ancient Port and Market Town

Coastline of Lincolnshire

This map shows Wainfleet to be on the coast in the 16th Century when it was an important port. Wool and grain were shipped out from here.

The Romans had built a road from Lincoln to Burgh le Marsh with a link to their fort at Skegness and the signal station at Ingoldmells Point.
