Heritage Open Days at Lyme Regis Guildhall

 

Visit Lyme's cemetery chapel
This is a rare opportunity: Lyme Regis is supporting Dorset Architectural Week by opening the very highly decorated Victorian Church of England chapel built in 1856 and not normally open to the public. It is still used occasionally by local families for funeral services and contains a fine example of a Victorian bier.  The chapel will be open from 10am to 4pm  Last year the chapel was opened for one day - this year they are opening for two so more people can visit.
There is also the opportunity to visit the nearby grave of the crew of HMS Formidable, lost in 1915. 

 

Opening Friday with Jim Causley and Friends,
 
featuring a great new nine-strong line-up including The Longest Johns, Nick Wyke and Becki Driscoll and Ninebarrow.  Tickets for all the Marine Theatre shows at Lyme Folk Weekend are £15 (Under 16s £10), available online at www.lymefolk.com or by calling 01927 443128.  7.30pm  Marine Theatre


 

10 - 18 Sep 2016
West Dorset Open EcoHomes:  We are opening fifteen homes around Bridport, Dorchester, Beaminster and Lyme Regis, some off grid, some new builds, one straw bale extension, a few retrofits, and a lot of enthusiasm among the hosts (and visitors we hope). Low carbon lifestyles are as important as the buildings.  http://bridport.greenopenhomes.net/

 

 

Saturday 10th

Belmont Open Days

This fine 18th-century maritime villa in Lyme Regis is listed Grade II* and once belonged to the remarkable businesswoman, Mrs Eleanor Coade who devised a formula to mass produce architectural embellishments. More recently Belmont was home to world-famous author, John Fowles, author of The Magus and The French Lieutenant's Woman.  We have restored Belmont to its appearance in Mrs Coade’s day. Here you can sit – and indeed write – in John Fowles’s former writing room with its wide views of sea and sky. In the garden there is a Victorian observatory tower, with hatch and revolving roof. Most of the long garden is left wild (Fowles was a keen naturalist) and it tumbles down to the esplanade, with a pebble beach and the Cobb beyond. We are so grateful to everyone who supported Belmont, helping us to raise a total of £1.8m.  Free Admission and leaflets on the building's history. 10am to 4pm No booking required.   Click here for location

The Spy Who Never Was: a talk by Peter Hill

Dorothy O'Grady, a landlady on the Isle of Wight, was the first woman to be charged with treason in 1940 under a new Act of Parliament. She was considered by the authorities to be a German agent. She went on the run after her arrest, but was recaptured, tried in secret at Winchester Assizes, and condemned to death without being called to give evidence. The sentence was commuted but she served many years in prison. A Heritage Coast U3A meeting at the Woodmead Halls:  we open the hall for coffee/tea at 10.00am - we have to finish serving at 10.40am (to allow the coffee volunteers time to wash up before the talk at 11.00am)  if you arrive after that you miss coffee.  Admission: Free to U3A members; small donation if non-member. More info see Heritage Coast U3A

WALKS and Tours

Do take advice about safe tide times before setting off for more than fifteen minutes hike, without a guide, along our beautiful beaches: - what appears to be an easy bit of ground to scramble over is more likely to be a treacherous mud slide - don't take a chance!

FOSSIL WALKS

Get Fossiling on the Jurassic Coast! Join one of Lyme Regis Museum’s famous fossil walks along this historic stretch of Dorset coast with Geologist Paddy Howe and Marine Biologist Chris Andrew. Some families return time and again to search with Paddy and Chris among the sand and rocks for fossils that have been washed down onto the beach after 190 million years. For adults and children alike, it’s an unforgettable experience.  Cost: £10 adults, children and students £5.

 

Each walk is limited to 15 people per guide. Start times for walks vary according to the tides and take about three hours.
