The Cobb, Lyme Regis

The Cobb, Lyme Regis, Dorset

Lyme’s most iconic image is that of the hooded Meryl Streep staring moodily out to sea from The Cobb, in the film The French Lieutenant’s Woman – indeed on a windy winter’s day, it’s hard to resist the temptation to recreate that atmospheric scene. Most days, however, The Cobb, a curving harbour wall dating from the 13th century, is packed with children running away from crashing waves or fishing from the walls and families out for a stroll. At the bottom of The Cobb, a line of blackboards advertise boat and fishing trips, which leave from the harbour below – on a fine day, you can simply turn up and choose the next trip going out. At the far end of The Cobb, there’s a small Aquarium ( displaying local marine life, including crabs, seahorses and an 80-year-old lobster.
