    Lyme Regis – 7 Quirky Facts

    1. She Sells Sea Shells…
      Lyme’s most famous daughter, Mary Anning is considered to have been one of the greatest fossil hunters of all time. Born in 1799, Anning first learnt how to find fossils from her father who sold them as curios to tourists. At the age of 11 Anning found an ichthyosaur skeleton which she sold to the local Lord of the manor. Before long she opened her own shop and despite being denied a formal education became one of the world’s leading fossil and dinosaur experts. As well as appearing in a number of novels including the French Lieutenants Woman, she was the subject of the nursery rhyme “She sells see shells on the seashore…”. In 2010 the Royal Society named her as one of the 10 most influential women in British science history.
    2. Under Siege
      In 1644 during the height of the English Civil War, Lyme Regis was besieged by Royalist forces for 8 weeks. The town was held by Parliamentarians who supported Oliver Cromwell and the politicians who wanted to overthrow King Charles I. The King sent his nephew Prince Maurice and 4,000 troops who surrounded the town and even fired on it from the cliffs. However, the town was supported by sea and were able to bring in provisions making the siege largely ineffective.In 1685 Lyme Regis was at the start of another rebellion. The Duke of Monmouth landed here at the beginning of the ill-fated Monmouth Rebellion and built an army comprising of many ordinary men from across the South West going into battle with little more than pitchforks. After defeat, his supporters were captured and hung in town squares across the region to dissuade any further uprisings.
    3. Royal Lyme
      ‘Regis’ refers to ‘Royal’, a charter and status given to the town by Edward I in 1284. The charter was reconfirmed by Queen Elizabeth I in 1591.
    4. Old Lyme
      The town is famed for its palaeontological importance and rich fossil deposits and forms part of the Jurassic Coast which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. That means Lyme Regis ranks up there with locations such as the Grand Canyon and Great Barrier Reef.
    5. Banksy Woz ‘ere
      In May 2012 a mysterious graffiti image appeared of an origami crane holding a fish in its beak. The image was confirmed to be the work of world-renowned graffiti artist Banksy.
    6. Story Tellers
      Colin Dexter, JRR Tolkien, Henry Fielding, Jane Austen, PG Wodehouse, Oscar Wilde, Beatrix Potter, Lord Tennyson and Sir John Betjemen, John Fowles are just some of the authors to have visited the town and a few of them actually used Lyme as a setting for their work (most notably Persuasion by Jane Austen and The French Lieutenant’s Women by John Fowles, subsequent films of both novels have been shot on location at Lyme).
    7. Clowns & Cowards!
      When Henry Fielding visited the town, he fell for Sarah Andrew who was the ward of a local merchant Andrew Tucker. Fielding tried to run away with her but she was prevented from leaving with him. The day after his failed attempt, Henry Fielding posted a public notice then fled the town in a hurry; “This is to give notice to all the World that Andrew Tucker and his son John Tucker are Clowns and Cowards. Witness my hand Henry Feilding” He later changed the spelling of his name.

    Local Info

    Schools – There are three primary and one secondary school in the town. You can view Ofsted reports here.

    Population – Small but perfectly formed, Lyme’s population had reached 4,712 by the time of the 2011 census.

    Transport – Dorset doesn’t tend to hurry. And why should it, the weather is good, the scenery is stunning and the climate is excellent. The A3052 drifts lazily to the A35 towards Weymouth and Bournemouth. There is currently no train station.

    News – Local news can be found in the Bridport News or events and local info can be found in Lyme-Online.

    About Lyme Regis

    Lyme Regis is an absolutely fascinating town, while we have tried to do it justice with our 7 Quirky Facts, we really are only just scratching the surface as there is so much great history and interesting myths surrounding the town. The novelist Colin Dexter described it as one of his favourite places in the world and it really is a charming. It’s not just then, the town offers so much to do now, from watersports and golf to places to visit and new hobbies to explore. There is always something new to do, discover, try.


    You simply can’t get bored in Lyme Regis, there is a dinosaur and fossil museum sitting on the site of the birthplace of Mary Fanning, the town’s most famous daughter. The town also hosts an annual Mary Anning Day plus a yearly Fossil Festival that attracts experts from across the world. If you enjoy messing about on boats or sitting and watching them while sipping champagne, there is the Lyme Regis Regatta. The town also has a carnival and some pretty wild Bonfire Night traditions. There is also a bowling club, golf club, target shooting centre, sports centre, powerboat club and a nature reserve. That’s before you even set foot on the South West County Path, Trafalgar Way or Jurassic Coast, all of which pass through the town.


    Tucked on the stunning coastline with great weather and great views, one thing you don’t want to be is in a great hurry. Lyme Regis is nicely off the beaten track with one main road entering and exciting the town, the A3052 which connects with the A35 for routes to Weymouth and Bournemouth. Currently Lyme Regis doesn’t have a train station.
