Monmouth Beach, Lyme Regis

(4.7/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
Monmouth Beach is a pebble and rock beach stretching approximately 1 mile from Lyme Regis's harbour, the Cobb, to Pinhay Bay,. It is part of the Jurassic Coast, situated below Ware Cliffs, and is constructed of a bay and a cove, Poker's Pool and Chippel Bay.

Monmouth beach is so named because the Duke of Monmouth landed there in 1685 during his attempt to take the crown from King James II. Following the defeat of the Duke of Monmouth, twelve locals were hanged on the beach on the order of the notorious “Hanging Judge” Jeffreys.
