A story of the unique landscape on the south west coast of England told by the people who have been looking after it.
A story of the unique landscape on the south west coast of England told by the people who have been looking after it. Before the great landslips at Bindon and Whitlands in the winter of 1839-1840, Lyme Regis had become popular for its picturesque and romantic landscapes and its healthy sea air. As news of the landslip spread, a new era of visiting to see the chaos began. Eventually interest dwindled as vegetation covered the falls and trees grew.
This book looks at the early days of the landslips and the nature reserve, and explores the wildlife living within the undercliffs and seashore environment.
