Jurassic Coast, Devon
from Bath: approx. 75 miles / 120 km
185 million years of the Earth’s history are
revealed along the ‘Jurassic’ Coast. This
is the finest record of the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous
periods in the world, stretching 95 miles from Exmouth
in Devon to Old Harry Rocks in Dorset. The town of Lyme
Regis is famous for its annual Fossil Festival.
The ‘Jurassic Coast’ trail includes:
Somerset and Dorset
countryside: From Bath we drive through beautiful
countryside, pausing at Chard or Montacute House. Chard
is linked with King Arthur, the Knights of the Round
Table and Camelot. Montacute is a magnificent Elizabethan
house incorporating part of London’s National
Walk to Golden Cap
(1 mile/1.5 km): the highest point on the coast (191
metres/625 feet) with magnificent views in all directions!
(2.5 miles/4 km): downhill all the way to Charmouth
Coast Centre: here you can learn about the rocks
and fossils of the ‘Jurassic’ Coast, go
fossil hunting on the beach (depending on tide time),
take off your shoes and paddle in sea!
Lyme Regis and The
Cobb: The Cobb (Harbour) dates from the 13th
Century and has inspired artists and writers such as
Jane Austen and John Fowles. The
French Lieutenant's Woman was filmed here.
