“Careful walking on that thing!”
Review of The Cobb

The Cobb
Ranked #5 of 29 things to do in Lyme Regis
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 March 2018

I came here as a Jane Austen enthusiast to see the scene from Persuasion. Was not disappointed. This is a must-see for any Janeite. Be careful walking on top of that Cobb, though. It's at a steep slant, tipping right over into the ocean. No hand-rail.

I had not heard of the Cobb before visiting Lyme
What an interesting place to visit. Do walk along the top and read the history of it>

Great view of Lyme bay and the town. Impressive construction. Easy access and parking right next to it.

Visited the Cobb on a very cold windy day, take care on such days as the slope takes you towards the sea!
What a great piece of work by the Royal Engineers over 150 years ago and still strong. Views over the bay are fantastic and the fossils in the stonework are amazing.
No sign of the French naval officer?

A super place for photographic views of the foreshore in Lyme Regis. Loads of parking especially in the off season.
