Stone-balancing On The Beach!
I have been creating stonebalancing sculptures for more than a decade. I like the essential beauty of the sculptures, the paradoxes they evoke and the spiritual element in both the act of the balancing and the finished work.

Lyme Regis Powerboat Club
2011 marked the 50th anniversary of the Lyme Regis Power Boat Club.
At the northern end of Town Beach, thousands of tonnes of pebbles were imported, as part of the coastal protection scheme, and placed on top of the pebbles originally there. The beach was built up by three metres to be level with the Cart Road and to extend 20 to 30 metres out to sea. It provides essential protection to the Marine Parade and the buildings along it.
At the Cobb end, the beach was also enhanced, this time with sand imported from France. The beach no longer gets covered at high tide and provides an extensive beach area. This beach is manned by RNLI lifeguards during the peak season, so it's the ideal place to swim and paddle. There are kiosks, takeaways, cafes, restaurants and public houses bordering this section of the beach.
This beach is so named because the Duke of Monmouth landed here in 1685 in an attempt to wrest the crown from King James II.
Monmouth beach extends over a kilometre southwest from the Cobb wall. Bordering this beach are holiday chalets, beach huts, the bowling green, Lyme Regis Power Boat Club, Boat Building Academy, and the council-run car parks.
Here you can find a layer of limestone called the ammonite graveyard or the ammonite pavement. This layer of rock is famous for the large ammonites it contains.
Church Cliff Beach
This is in front of the rock armour that protects the promenade. It is sandy in places and at low tide there is an extensive rock ledge with hundreds of rock pools where you can catch shrimps.
The River Lym flows into the bay on this part of the beach so you will have to paddle if you want to walk along the sands. The beach is covered at high tide.
East Cliff Beach
This extends northwest of the town towards Charmouth. The cliffs surrounding the beach are very unstable with extensive mudflows in places, and should be admired from a distance. The beach can be accessed from the north end of the promenade. Follow the road from Cobb Gate car park to the new Church Cliff Walk, which provides access to the fossil-rish East Cliff Beach. Enquire about tides before you set out because the beach can be cut off at high tide.
The cliffs above this beach are called the Spittles and are part of the biggest landslip in Europe.
The new seawall was officially opened in June 2015, with a safe footpath link to Charmouth Road car park. Be aware there are 114 steps back up to the car park, but there are plenty of benches along the way and at the top to sit and enjoy the spectacular views across the bay.
