  About your Area

Humberston is a large village to the south of Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire (the boundary with Cleethorpes runs along North Sea Lane and Humberston Road). Its population at the 2001 census was 5,375.

Humberston, or Humberstone as the village was known at first, takes its name from a large boulder, the Humber Stone, which was deposited on the site of the former Midfield Farm on the east side of the village during the last ice age.[citation needed] This boulder can still be seen at the entrance to the village library. The "e" at the end of the name was later dropped, to avoid confusion with other places of the same name i.e humberstone in leicestershire.

The oldest and tallest building in Humberston is St Peter's Church and was rebuilt about 1710, the tower of which is over seven hundred years old.[citation needed] At the back of the church is the site of the former abbey of Benedictine monks founded here in the reign of Henry II, dedicated to Saints Mary and Peter, the only remains that are left are ground workings of which the monks mound is very prominent in the manor house garden and during excavations stone sarcophagi were found The Wesleyan Methodists built a small chapel here on humberston avenue in 1835. A larger, replacement chapel was built in 1907. Humberstone has several claims for historic prominence: This is where the Danes landed early in the year 870 to begin their scourge and plunder of Lincolnshire. One of the first Wireless Stations was built here in 1910.

[edit] Places of interest

A place of interest is the man-made lake which is central to Cleethorpes Country Park off North Sea Lane. Cleethorpes Country Park is home to Canada Geese and many other types of wild birds. Humberston is also home to a large holiday caravan park known as Thorpe Park and also the conservation area known as Humberston Fitties.In the late 40's early 50's this was known as Fitties Field.

Thorpe Park, a Haven site, owned by Bourne Leisure, is one of the largest caravan sites in the country and has more privately owned caravans that any other Haven site.

[edit] Tesco superstore

Humberston is home to a Tesco Extra store; which was expanded in 2006. A second floor was added in 2007, and opened in September. Located on Hewitt's circus it serves the local area.
