Inns on the Edge Exhibition

We held a special exhibition in the stunning gallery space at the North Sea Observatory celebrating the historic pubs of the Lincolnshire coast from 16th-29th May 2022.

The Lincolnshire coast is a land of shifting sands and changing fortunes. We explored how these inns, taverns and beerhouses were shaped by our coastal communities.

We told the stories of smugglers, shipwrecks, ghosts and local legends. We also shared memories from more recent history and the games, drinks and communities that have made Lincolnshire's pubs special.

You can be part of the story visiting and sharing your memories with our team. Like pubs across the country, many of these much-loved buildings now face an uncertain future. Find out what you can do to support them and help preserve their history.
