The History and Geology of Lyme Regis.
This is a short history of the ancient sea port of Lyme Regis and a guide to the geology of the fossil rich Lyme Regis Dorset / Devon coastline.
The beautiful coastline has been granted World Heritage Site status because of the outstanding earth science interest. The town has a long and varied history; records start in 774AD. There has been no noticeable development and so Lyme Regis remains unspoiled. It is famous for not only its finds of fossils and its geology, but also the abundance of famous personalities that have lived and visited here and its uniqueness in these modern times.
