Lyme is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. In the 13th century it developed into one of the major British ports. A Royal Charter was granted by King Edward I in 1284, with the addition of ‘Regis’ to the town’s name. This charter was confirmed by Elizabeth I in 1591.
By 1750 it had become a popular sea spa frequented by Royalty, Poets, Writers and Painters. Among them, Henry Fielding, famed for his attempted abduction of the local 16-year-old orphan Sarah Andrew.
Turner painted here, as did Whistler who recorded the local Blacksmith on canvas as well as painting his most well known “The Little Rose of Lyme”.
