Skegness located in East Lindsey is the 28th town to be surveyed by the EUS project. Skegness possibly derives from old Danish and old English and means Skeggi’s (referring to a person)and ‘ness’ meaning a headland or cape. The town began to grow into a resort in the late 19th century and continued to grow steadily in the 20th century, despite being heavily bombed during the second world war.
