the cobb is the famous bit of stuff in lyme regis, it’s the harbour wall that features in jane austen’s persuasion and the john fowles’ the french lieutenant’s woman. and though it’s undoubtedly lovely i was rather more impressed by the modern sea wall in my pic here which was built to combine sea defences with storing and moving sewage around. they could have done something horribly utilitarian here but they built this gorgeous walkway instead and i doubt most people ever know that’s what it’s for.
at the moment i’m having trouble remembering that we had a summer this year, but at least i have photos to prove it.
