  • Here are the details of maps for Lyme Regis:

  • Devon Sheet 84.07 Lyme Regis 1903 - published 1997; intro by Alan Godfrey. ISBN.978-0-85054-878-5

    Within the OS County Series the sheetlines for the Devon series covered Lyme Regis more neatly than did those for Dorset, which explains why we have used a Devon Sheet and numbering. Fear not, we know that Lyme Regis is a Dorset town! This very detailed map covers this charming seaside town, and coverage extends west across the county boundary at Devonshire Head to Furze Close and Ware House. The map, so detailed that individual houses are shown in the cramped streets, includes the harbour and famous Cobb, scene of such famous episodes in Jane Austen's novel Persuasion and John Fowles's The French Lieutenant's Woman. Other features on the map include St Michael's church, Guildhall, Broad Street, Coombe Street, disused cloth and silk mills, Jericho, Hatchet, Sidmouth Road, Lucy's Ledge, Poulett House, Assembly Rooms, jetties, cement works, Chippel Bay, Cobb Gate Beach, Lower Ware. The railway station is at the top of the map. On the back we include a 1911 directory for Lyme Regis, listing tradesmen, councillors etc
