The Jurassic Coast

Dorset, the county made famous by the works of Thomas Hardy holds many pleasant childhood memories from Uploders village and the surrounding area of Bridport for my girlfriend.

Our time was spent sampling local cuisine after the warmest of welcomes at the Askerswell family run pub, The Spyway Inn, a supposedly haunted smugglers Inn, dating from 1745. This was followed by a trip to West Bay (situated on the Jurassic coast world heritage site) which was perfect for long walks above the golden sandstone cliffs.

The rest of our time was spent exploring the quirky coastal town of Lyme Regis, nick-named ‘the pearl of Dorset’, well known for the fossils found along the cliffs of the Jurassic coastline.
