Holme Port

Port and Probable Settlement

Situated on the north-eastern shores of the Metaris Aestuarium (The Wash), it is very likely that merchant vessels had plied their trade across the wash from early times, and the Romans found trade-routes already existing between Holme and Skegness in particular.
