Burgh le Marsh in Lincolnshire

Burgh le Marsh in LincolnshireBurgh le Marsh is a thriving market town, 3 mile inland from Skegness in Lincolnshire UK.

Burgh's history goes back to Roman times and beyond, where a prehistoric Celtic road (BluestoneHeath Road) led off the Wolds into Burgh. In the early days, Burgh was just marsh land. The land was drained and the rising ground on which the town stands would have been considered a "safe place", hence the name Burgh-in-the-Marsh.

Later the name was changed to Burgh-le-Marsh.
