Lyme Regis (3), Dorset
The harbour from the high ground in Lister/Langmoor Gardens. I heard that in 2006-2007 the gardens were completely destroyed because huge stabilisation works were planned during those two years. This, I imagine, would be to stop the unstable high ground from slumping onto the town below. At the height of the works there was not a single tree, or blade of grass to be seen. It looked, from a distance, like an open cast mine of dark blue lias clay. One would never guess that these gardens went through such a major upheaval.

From the outer part of the harbour wall one gets a nice view of the town in the distance.
The view from the harbour easterly across Lyme Bay showing Golden Cap; the highest point in the distance.
Golden Cap is the highest part on the south coast at 627 feet
The Cobb is quite a wall. It is significantly higher than a person and has a wide flat top which slopes from one edge to the other (visible in the photograph). Having walked along it I can tell you that the slope gives it a slightly precarious feel but the views on a sunny day are certainly worth it,
