Ingoldmells (sometimes "Ingoldmels") is both a village and a parish that lie on the North Sea about 10 miles south-east of Alford and 4 miles north of Skegness. Winthorpe parish lies to the south and Chapel St. Leonard parish to the north. Ingoldmells Point is the eastern-most point of land in Lincolnshire at high tide.
The village can be reached by taking the A52 trunk road north from Skegness. Today it is a popular summer resort with cabins and caravan parks for tourists and families on holiday. If you are planning a visit:
Here you can find Fantasy Island, Britain's first themed indoor resort.
Nearby, on Anchor Lane, is Hardy's Animal Farm for the children, open from Easter to October.
The name Ingoldmells is from the Old Scandinavian Ingjaldr+melr, or "sandbanks of Ingjaldr". It appears, perhaps incorrectly, in the 1086 Domesday Book as in Guldelsmere, and in the 12th century as Ingoldesmeles. A. D. Mills, "A Dictionary of English Place-Names," Oxford University Press, 1991.
