Gibraltar Point Visitor Centre demolished: April 2015
The Gibraltar Pont Nature Reserve visitor centre was badly damaged during winter storms in December 2013. Gibraltar Point was flooded when a tidal surge hit the Lincolnshire coast near Skegness,
The new one million pound visitor centre will be built on stilts to protect it from flooding. The new visitor centre will have windows facing the marsh and the sea. The Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve visitor centre will have a rooftop viewing deck. The old coastguard building will also be refurbished.
The reserve and the Wash View Point will stay open during the building of the new centre.
Lincolnshire County Council and Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust have worked together to develop plans for a new visitor centre. Lincolnshire County Council is contributing £430,000, Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust is contributing £150,000, and an application is being made for £420,000 from the government's Coastal Communities Fund.
