Cleethorpes is a beach resort on the estuary of the Humber in North East Lincolnshire with a population of almost 40,000 in 2011. It has been completely occupied since the 6th century, with fishing as its authentic enterprise, then developing right into a hotel within the 19th century. The city lies on the Greenwich meridian and its common annual rainfall is amongst the bottom in the British Isles.
The name Cleethorpes is notion to come from becoming a member of the words clee, an antique word for clay, and thorpes, an Old English/Old Norse phrase for villages, and is of relatively present day starting place. Before becoming a unified town, Cleethorpes was made from 3 small villages, or "thorpes": Itterby, Oole and Thrunscoe, which had been a part of a much broader parish referred to as Clee.
Whilst there are neolithic and Bronze Age remains in the place, everlasting career seems to date from the 6th century, while the Danes arrived, with substantial groups acting handiest inside the 9th century. The manor of Itterby become bought in 1616 by the trustees of Peter Blundell's charity for the advantage of scholars and fellows at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge from Blundell's School, Tiverton. This is contemplated in lots of the road and park names in the area
