‘Bathing Beauties’ was launched to promote this lovely, almost forgotten, stretch of Lincolnshire coastline with an international competition for artists, architects and designers to ‘Re-imagine the Beach Hut for the 21st Century’. 240 incredible design structures from over 15 countries were submitted. Anderby Creek is home to 2 ‘Bathing Beauties’ – the Round and Round House and the Cloud Bar.
The UK’s first permanent cloud watching outpost, designed by Michael Trainor. A unique larch, acrylic and concrete construction, featuring a cloud-spotting menu, specially designed cloud-viewing seating and self-operating parabolic cloud-mirrors to magic the sky down to the earth.
Recognised as the world’s first ‘Official Cloud Spotting Area’ by The Cloud Appreciation Society
This small building was designed by Kingston and Weber of Soma Design and chosen in the Bathing Beauties competition because it’s ideal for bird-watching. Constructed from curved laminated plywood. Positioned in the dunes 350m south of the beach entrance, up a narrow wooden boardwalk and steps.
This year, the annual Bathing Beauties festival is held on 5-6th September. http://www.bathingbeautiesfestival.org/bathing-beauties.html
