The jurassic coastline in and around Lyme Regis is a constant in the live of my family.... and wonderful to think that Jane Austen (after visiting a number of times in 1803-4), loved it too - and bases much of her last novel Persuasion there.
‘A very strange stranger it must be, who does not see charms in the immediate environs of Lyme, to make him wish to know it better. The principal street almost hurrying into the water, the Walk to the Cobb, skirting round the pleasant little bay, which, in the season, is animated with bathing machines and company...are what the stranger's eye will seek. The scenes, with its high grounds and extensive sweeps of country, and still more, its sweet, retired bay, backed by dark cliffs, where fragments of low rock among the sands, make it the happiest spot for watching the flow of the tide, for sitting in unwearied contemplation.
