The coastal town of Lyme Regis in West Dorset lies on Lyme Bay along the Jurassic Coast, and is twinned with the British Overseas Territory of Bermuda. The town lies 25 miles from Exeter and 25 miles from Dorchester. ‘Lyme’ is mentioned in the Doomsday Book of 1086. The term ‘Regis’ was added by King Edward I in 1284 and was confirmed by Queen Elizabeth I in 1591. A local lifeboat delivered bodies from the first major U-boat loss of World War I to the Pilot Inn on Bridge Street. The owner’s dog, Lassie, licked the face of a dead man and seemingly brought him back to life. This dog’s namesake became legend of books, film and TV. The town is noted for its fossils that are found on beaches and cliffs. The Blue Lias rock hosts a multitude of remains from the Jurassic period, spanning approximately 185 million years of the Earth’s history. In 2005, work began on a £16 million engineering project to stabilise and protect the town from coastal erosion. A watermill from 1340 has recently been restored to working order to still produce flour. Hiscott’s boarding house on Broad Street has accommodated such figures as Alfred Lord Tennyson, JRR Tolkien, Jane Austen and GK Chesterton. The first ever fossil shop was opened in Lyme Regis by palaeontologist Mart Anning. Lyme Regis has been given a World Heritage Coast status, on par with the Grand Canyon and the Great Barrier Reef. The town has many historic attractions and is a good base for walkers. The South West Coast Path, the Wessex Ridgeway and the Liberty Trail all pass through the town.
There are 3 schools within the Lyme Regis area, all with high quality reports and a good standard of teaching. The Woodroffe Comprehensive School, founded in 1932 by Alban Woodroffe MBE, stands for “boldness and constancy”. The school uniform schools are red and light blue, and it is located just off of the B3165 which runs through the town. Other schools in Lyme Regis include Mrs Ethelson’s Primary School and St Michael’s Primary School.
There are an abundance of schools and centres of education just outside of the town, with Bournemouth University, Weymouth College and University of Plymouth within a reasonable distance, perfect for further studies and learning. Lyme Regis’ coastal location and simple access to larger areas means it is an idyllic location, perfect for students and parents alike.
The Cobb in Lyme Regis is an old stone pier that forms an extensive harbour, and is believed to date from the time of Edward I. The origin is unknown, and the earliest known drawing, made in 1539, shows a basic shape similar to the present construction. It was connected to the mainland in 1756 and the North Wall was built in 1823. It was also featured in multiple films, such as The French Lieutenant’s Woman and Persuasion. Why not take a stroll down this famous promenade, taking in all the spectacular views of Charmouth, Chesil Beach and the boats floating around the harbour? Treat yourself to some tasty local fish and chips and take in the sunset from the end of the pier.
The aquarium is located at the end of the Cobb, and is home to a variety of fish and sea creatures, including bass, blennies, lobsters, mullet, starfish, sea scorpions, crabs and dogfish. There are many different experiences available, including mullet feeding, a fun opportunity to directly feed one of the ray-finned fish that are distinguished by their two dorsal fins and absence of a lateral line organ, and starfish handling, a chance to hold an echinoderm which has a fossil record that dates back to around 450 million years ago. For a fossil hunting adventure, or for a beautiful seaside walk, Monmouth Beach, just off of Charmouth Road in Lyme Regis, can provide a source of entertainment for all the family. Depending on your interest, you can either take in the beach and the tide, go for a swim or simply soak up the sun, or you can go searching for that ammonite you’ve always wanted, as it is an area popular with fossil hunters.
For something completely different, there is the Tunnel Target Sports Centre, opened in 2010, that has three on site shooting ranges and shooting equipment, and offers shooting experience for a range of ages. In the summer, there is also a woodland archery range onsite for traditional English longbow and recurve bow, for those wanting to try out their Robin Hood talents. Mackerel Fishing Trips are also available for anyone wanting to take to the water and try their hand at deep sea fishing. Ranked 5 star on TripAdvisor, the boats will set out from the end of the harbour, you will receive tuition and the equipment needed, and get to keep whatever you catch out on the boat.
Lyme Regis has a multitude of events and activities on offer and aims to please people all ages and interests. This charming coastal town is the ideal place to retire to, start a new life in, or move to.
