The West Country / Dorset region
Lyme Regis is a narrow tangle of streets that tumble down to its 13th Century Cobb harbour, where a cloaked Meryl Streep famously stood in the film ‘The French Lieutenant’s Woman’ adapted from the novel by local author, John Fowles. It is an ancient town with a varied history stretching back to the 8th century. It was from here that ships sailed to meet the Spanish Armada and the Duke of Monmouth landed in 1685. Today Lyme Regis offers fun for all the family with its sheltered beaches, bustling harbour, shops, galleries and many attractions. Why not enjoy the view of Golden Cap, the highest point on the South coast at 626 feet. It gets its name from the top layers of golden sandstone, which glow, in the sunshine.
The Charmouth area
The Jurassic Coast – England’s first natural World Heritage Site. This unique stretch of coastline has joined the ranks of the Great Barrier Reef and the Grand Canyon as one of the wonders of the Natural World. The Dorset and East Devon coast has become a World Heritage Site due to its outstanding geology, which represents 186 million years of earth history in just 95 miles.
The best place to find fossils is in West Dorset – just remember that it is safer to look on the beach, not on the cliffs. It is also worth remembering that the ideal time to find fossils is during the winter months when the rough seas have washed away soft mud and clays, making the Jurassic Coast the perfect choice for a Winter break.
The Jurassic Coast is stunningly beautiful, with unparalleled range of natural features. The variety of beaches, bays and cliffs result in a constantly changing landscape, with such spectacular features as the Hooken Landslide, Chesil Beach and Durdle Door.
The coast is well served by the towns and villages, which act as gateways to the Jurassic site, and you will notice the changing character of the coast due to the use of local stone. Such famous stones as Beer, Portland and Purbeck have shaped the character of the towns and villages and have also been used in the construction of the finest buildings, Cathedrals and churches throughout the UK and the World
