Various views of Lyme Regis harbour at Lyme Bay, Dorset.
More about this webcam location:
This webcam overlooks The Cobb at Lyme Bay, Dorset. The Cobb is the ancient harbour wall you can see in many of the preset views, enjoyed by tourists, sunbathers and sea-jumpers alike, though in the winter-time there are not many hardy enough to make the jump.
Lyme Regis and its environs form part of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the coastline has been awarded the international accolade of a World Heritage Site designation, only one of two in England. Part of the reasoning for this is the well known instability of the cliffs which has made Lyme a mecca for fossil hunters.
This status puts its importance on a par with The Grand Canyon in America and The Great Barrier Reef in Australia.
The Lyme Regis area is a beautiful spot with plenty to do. Walking: The South West Coast Path, The Wessex Ridgeway, The Liberty Trail all pass through the town. Museums: The Philpot Town Museum, The Dinosaur Museum, The Town Mill, various other exhibitions and museums.
