HUMBERSTON FITTIES, 1ST MAIN ROAD, HUMBERSTON, LINCOLNSHIRE, DN36 4EZ
Humberston Fitties is an historic location close to the Victorian resort of Cleethorpes. 'Fitties' is a local word meaning 'salt marsh'. The Humberston Fitties were originally one of a number of fitties along this part of the coastline. Nearby Cleethorpes actually sits on the Humber Estuary and the sea at Cleethorpes is actually the mouth of the Humber. Humberston Fitties has been recognised as a billeting area for soldiers in both World Wars, with people settling at the site since the 1920's. In 1996, the area was declared a conversation area. More recently it has even been featured in a doc-series hosted by Robson Green exploring Britain's coastline.
