Monmouth Beach and The Cobb
 
This is the famous Cobb, Monmouth Beach, and Lyme Regis harbour after a snowfall. The beach is named after The Duke of Monmouth, who landed there with his troops in 1685, having sailed from the Netherlands. It is now a favourite area for fossil hunters, and has many fine examples of giant ammonites, too big to be carried away. In 2013 there were some massive landslips here which led to the removal of several of the holiday chalets built at the back of the beach.
Visitors also come to see the harbour wall, known as The Cobb, which featured in the film 'The French Lieutenant's Woman' and also the tv production of Jane Austen's 'Persuasion'
