Lyme Regis Harbour

Lyme Regis Harbour

FOR SALE - Lyme Regis is a coastal town in West Dorset, England. The town lies in Lyme Bay, on the English Channel coast at the Dorset–Devon border. It is nicknamed "The Pearl of Dorset." The town is noted for the fossils found in the cliffs and beaches, which are part of the Heritage Coast—known commercially as the Jurassic Coast—a World Heritage Site. The harbour wall, known as "The Cobb", features in Jane Austen's novel Persuasion, and in The French Lieutenant's Woman, a novel by British writer John Fowles, as well as the 1981 film of the same name, which was partly filmed in Lyme Regis. Lyme Regis is located on an exposed part of the shoreline, where there is no natural harbour and manmade structures are necessary to provide both a boat haven and protection from storms. The Cobb is the town’s jetty that extends into the sea, providing both harbor and defense. It dates at least to the 13th century, has been destroyed by storms and rebuilt numerous times. Without The Cobb, there would be no town.

 
Monte Carlo (Hercules Port)

Monte Carlo (Hercules Port)

FOR SALE - Hercules Port is a natural bay at the foot of the ancestral rock of the princes of Monaco. It is one of the few, if not the only deep-water port of the French Riviera. It was used as a trading port by the Greeks and Romans but had the disadvantage of being poorly sheltered from the easterly winds. This prompted the erection of two piers in the early twentieth century which went some way to providing better protection. More recently, at the instigation of HRH Prince Rainier III, studies were conducted in the 1970s to better protect the stretch of water by placing, before the two existing piers, a new sea wall and a lee breakwater intended to provide the port with full protection from the swells of the eastern sector. Inside the original port, HRH Prince Albert II, who continued the work started by his father, wished to see the stretch of water undergo comprehensive redevelopment to make the port in Monaco the most modern and most practical marina in the western Mediterranean. This redevelopment enable large and luxurious pleasure craft to be welcomed in response to the development of ocean cruising.

The sandy beach, on the eastern side, faces the Solent and looks out across to the Isle of Wight. This beach offers good bathing and magnificent views as well. The harbour side is not really suitable for swimming but is extensively used for water sports. The eastern side of Mudeford Spit is broken up into sections by a series of (mainly) wooden groynes.

A lot of timber was imported by Moreys (which is still trading today as a builders merchant) and stacks of timber could often seen on the quayside.
