Society publishes its latest work featuring some of the town’s most remarkable architecture

Historic Houses of Lyme Regis - part 4.Historic Houses of Lyme Regis - part 4.

Lynne Regis Society has launched the latest in a series of books about the fascinating history of some of the town’s most remarkable architecture.

Historic Houses part 4 features a range of articles as diverse as ‘The Cobb’ and how it has evolved over the years to protect and shelter the town, to ‘Coolrus’, a fine example of a ‘Caddy’ house, arts and crafts houses that were built all over Lyme Regis by the Caddy family of builders early in the 20th century. The booklet features fascinating illustrations of maps, diagrams and early photographs that make the words come alive.

Historic Houses part 4 is available at many local shops, including: Amid Idols and Giants coffee shop, The Alexandra Hotel, The Black Dog tea room, The Cobb newspaper shop, Felicity’s farm shop, Lyme Regis Museum, The Mariners Hotel, Serendip and the Tourist Information Centre. It costs £1.75 to Lyme Regis Society Members and £1.95 to non-members.
