Twilight Walk at Lyme – Part 2

Night was falling fast, but I had to get one last walk in, to the Cobb – the old harbour area.

To get there, we walked right along the beach from town.

There were some pretty terraces along the way. This one was decorated with fossil ammonites, one of the more common species to be found in Lyme.

Even the lamp posts were sculptured like ammonites. I guess fossil hunting is major tourist attraction in these parts.

Soon we had a clear view of the old sea walls of the Cobb. Jane Austen used it well in her novel Persuasion – it is the place the main characters visited and the scene of a dreadful accident.

I’m having a short blog break and will return in a week or so with more on Lyme Regis.
