The Cobb
 
The harbour wall or The Cobb in Lyme Regis was made famous when it featured in the film 'The French Lieutenant's Woman, and more recently in the TV adaptation of Jane Austen's 'Persuasion'. It was here that Louisa Musgrove fell down the steps in Persuasion, and where Meryl Streep stood in 'The French Lieutenant's Woman'.
The curvature of the Cobb helps deflect the enormous power of the waves which have almost destroyed it on many occasions over the centuries.
