Axmouth to Lyme Regis (English Nature)


The largest landslip in the UK provides the landscape for a walk through successional plant communities, that harbour several rare and ancient indicator species including Dogs Mercury and purple gromwell. This is basically a really nice walk in a unique landscape. If you're thinking of walking parts of the coastal path then this is a good section to include. In addition it ends at Lyme Regis- prime dinosaur hunting territory! The Jurassic Coast.

Where: SY 256 896- SY 323 913
When: March- June is best for woodland birds, and March- May for wild flowers. There is no real seasonality to this site however it is prone to sea mist, and the path and steps can get slippery so best to avoid over the wettest months of the year.
