Lyme Regis

A very picturesque medieval port where the town slopes (see below) steeply down to the sea. Nowadays it is a charming resort which has been the backdrop of many a film including French Lieutenants Woman where the Cobb (the jetty that juts out to sea) was prominently featured. Just beyond the town is a completely untouched beach that is rich in fossils.
