GV II

Castle Folly. 1885 for the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway Company. Iron slag and limestone rubble. Built into the low sea cliff. Oval on plan, approximately 40 metres long by 25 metres wide, and approximately 10 metres high. 2 stages, the larger bottom stage, with low buttresses on the seaward side, carrying a path winding up to the top of the upper stage which has a wide arched recess on its south-west side and an irregular parapet above. Built as part of the improvements to the promenade and pier gardens undertaken by the railway company, and named after the company's secretary, Edward Ross. The top of the castle marks the original height of the clay cliffs which were being eroded by the sea until the new promenade was created. G Parratt and A J Kay, Cleethorpes Trail, 1987 p 5.
