The Cobb

The Cobb at Lyme Regis is an old stone pier forming an extensive harbour and believed to date from the time of Edward I. The origin of the name is unknown, but there are records of an ancient feast called the “Cobb Ale Feast”.

With a length of 870 feet the curve of the Cobb forms a fine promenade though its upper surface slopes to the sea at an appreciable angle. Its high wall makes it a double promenade and walkers have a choice of shelter or a glorious blow.

The eastern section ends with the Victoria Pier, so-called after the Princess Victoria landed here with her mother in 1833.

You forgot the French Lieutenant's Woman!! Didn't know any of the other stuff in your interestng narrative. A lovely blue hour shot

This looks like a scene out of one of Jane Austen’s books - Persuasion. They made a film out of it in 1994 with Ciaran Hinds and this pier looks just if it was used there.
