- Great Coates -
Great Coates is a village of about 500 houses situated close to Grimsby.
There are no pubs or shops but Grimsby's Willows Estate provides these facilities within reach of the village.
One half of Great Coates has been deemed a conservation area while the other backs on to an industrial estate, dividing the village.
There are a number of public footpaths through the village and out into the neighbouring fields and - though there are no annual events - the Reading Rooms can be hired for private functions.
A train service runs about every two hours between Great Coates and Grimsby
