Chapel St. Leonards is a large coastal village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, situated approximately six miles north of Skegness. The village has a resident population of around 3,000, but this swells significantly in the summer months due to tourism.
The quiet and attractive centre of the village is flanked to the south by several caravan holiday parks, hotels and bed and breakfast establishments, and to the north by the picturesque Chapel Point, which forms the gateway to the Lincolnshire Coastal Country Park.
The village, which is renowned for its expanse of beautiful sandy beach, lies close to tourist attractions, such as Fantasy Island and Butlin’s Skegness Resort. The market towns of Alford, Horncastle and Louth are within easy reach, as are the Lincolnshire Wolds (a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and the seaside resorts of Skegness and Mablethorpe.
The name of the village stems from a chapel dedicated to St Leonard which was originally founded in the nearby village of Mumby
