Here are some photos of a beautiful part of the Dorset coast called Lyme Regis. I went to school at The Woodroffe School and my family lived there for a few years before moving to Marshwood in Dorset. Lyme Regis is part of the Jurassic coast where ancient fossils can be found on monmouth beach. Mary Anning was an eager fossilist in this area in the 19th century. Jane Austen wrote her novel Persuasion while residing there and the movie with Meryl Streep 'The French Leutenants Woman' was filmed there. It was a mystical sight to see her standing at the end of The Cobb.
This is the Cobb in Lyme Regis - what an amazing walk this is - and scarey on a windy day!
The Cobb Arms a well known pub by the beach - I remember having prawns and chips there many years
This is the Alexandra hotel, it is lovely to have tea on the lawn!
I used to go to my ballet classes at the back of this hotel.
this is a landmark - a pretty cottage as you drive into Lyme Regis
this is one of the fossils embedded in stone, I saw it on Monmouth beach this year
This is Golden Cap
Hope you enjoy them
