THE STORY OF THE HOUSE WITH THE BLUE DOOR

Historic seaside location

The Humberston Fitties settlement on this section of the Cleethorpes coast dates from around WW1 as a soldiers' encampment. In the years afterwards when seaside air was a seen as a way to escape the grime of urban life families would take what they could find down to the coast and create 'bungalows' by the sand. In the century since the site has grown and now has 316 plots each with a unique property on it. THWTBD dates back to 1932 when planning permission was granted for a three-bedroomed bungalow with wood burner, wash house and pantry. The chalet has changed over the years, with the addition of the apex-roofed lounge, but the main body of the building dates back nearly 100 years.
