Artist's Description

Monmouth Beach is a pebble and rock beach stretching approximately 1 mile from Lyme Regis’s harbour, the Cobb, (West Dorset) to Pinhay Bay, (East Devon). It is situated below Ware Cliffs, and is constructed of a bay and a cove, Poker’s Pool and Chippel Bay.

View Of Monmouth Beach From Just Off Of The Lyme Regis Cobb.Monmouth beach is so named because the Duke of Monmouth landed there in 1685 during his attempt to take the crown from King James II. Following the defeat of the Duke of Monmouth, twelve locals were hanged on the beach on the order of the notorious “Hanging Judge” Jeffreys.

[edit] FossilsMonmouth Beach is now owned by the National Trust, and is very popular with fossil hunters, as ammonites, belemnites, plant fossils and even a few remains of Ichthyosaur vertebrae fossils have been found here. The cliffs are estimated to be 199-189 million years old.

There have been several landslips here lately, would be a terrible shame to lose those clffs
