 A Walk with the French Lieutenant’s Woman
This walking tour focuses on the landscape that inspired the creator of The French Lieutenant’s Woman, acclaimed novelist John Fowles. First stop will be his last home, Belmont, and from there the walk will cross the sunlit cliff tops to the Undercliff nature reserve, which forms part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. The walk visits places featured in the novel and film, which memorably starred Meryl Streep and Jeremy Irons. The best is left until last – as the walk reaches the secluded farmhouse that Fowles adored and the quirky workroom where he wrote The French Lieutenant’s Woman. There’s an opportunity to explore the grounds, take in the views of the sea and Undercliff that Fowles would have enjoyed, whilst listening to and discussing excerpts from the novel and Fowles' diaries.  Cost £25 per person.  3pm  For more information and reservations, contact Natalie Manifold at Literary Lyme on 07763 974569. email: natalie.manifold@hotmail.co.uk  web: www.literarylyme.co.uk/frenchlieutenantswomantours.html

While there, she also met the Nairobi branch of Amnesty International.  She will be talking about these experiences, and says: “My main goal would be to inspire everyone to not only write about what they feel passionate about, but also to motivate them to work more directly.”  This is a not-to-be missed opportunity to hear the direct witness of one of our adventurous young human rights activists.  Organised by the Lyme Regis group of Amnesty International.  Free entry  5.30 pm Hallett Court, Queens Walk, Lyme Regis DT7 3BL

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.

Your fossil walk ticket gives you FREE access to the museum where you will be able to see displays of rare fossils, learn all about Mary Anning, the famous early paleontologist who once lived on the site of the museum and much more. 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.
