Fossil Centre, Lyme Regis
West Dorset District Council has recently completed extensive sea defence works at Lyme Regis which for the first time make it possible for pedestrians to reach the waterfront at the east end of town, and the important fossil beach between Lyme Regis and Charmouth.

The feasibility study explored the opportunity for Lyme Regis to establish itself at the heart of the Jurassic Coast, with fossil collections from the Natural History Museum a refurbished theatre/events centre, and a centre for study related to fossil collecting. The Heritage Coast team are hopeful of financial support from the Regional Development Agency.
