Lyme Regis, August 1936
Hundreds of holidaymakers are enjoying the shingle beach at Lyme Regis. The beach is lined full of huts. In the distance a stretch of coastline known as the Spittle can be seen. It is part of the Jurassic Coast and rich in fossils. The famous fossil hunter, Mary Anning, found an ichthyosaur in the Spittles in the early 1800s.
