There has been a Cobb at Lyme Regis for hundreds of years, and this formed an important harbour which at one point was bigger than Liverpool's. Initially it was built of timbers and large stones. Eventually in the 19th century it was faced with Portland stone. The Cobb was featured in the film The French Lieutenant's Woman. The author of the book, John Fowles, was at one point the curator of Lyme Regis museum.

The famous Cobb at Lyme Regis in West Dorset has existed for hundreds of years, and at one point enabled Lyme to become a major port in medieval times. It has been repaired many times over the years and was rebuilt in Portland stone by the Royal Engineers in the early 19th century. In the background is the Golden Cap and part of the Jurassic Coast.
