The Society produces Newsletters three times a year in Spring, Autumn and Winter. These have articles about current activities, past events, notable local buildings and other relevant items of interest.

The Society occasionally publishes books about Lyme Regis and its locality. Our publication Signs of History is a book of four walks around the historic signs, notable buildings and literary connections of the town.
The book is available to members at the price of £3.50 which is a good saving over the price in the shops. Members should contact the Membership Secretary if you would like to purchase a copy.
Our most recent publications are three booklets about the historic buildings of Lyme Regis. These are intended to be the first three in an ongoing series with new booklets printed every year or two. The series is entitled Historic Houses of Lyme Regis and has articles taken from our Newsletters between 2001 and 2013.
Part 1 includes The Anning House, The Guildhall, The Parish Church, The Town Mill, The (so called) Leper’s Well, The Regent Cinema, The Peek Memorial Chapel, The Grove, Belmont, 6 Cobb Road and The Captain’s House.
Part 2 contains Sundial House, Library Cottage, The Philpot Museum, The Victoria Hall, The (new) Three Cups, Aveline House, The Great House, The Retreat, Westhill and The Catholic Church.
Part 3 is the third in a series of books about the important and interesting houses and other buildings of Lyme Regis. It takes the form of a series of articles by a number of authors that have appeared in the newsletters of the Lyme Regis Society since 2013. The buildings described in this book are Upper Cobb House, High Cliff, Lyme Regis Hospital, The Mariner’s Hotel, Rose Hill, Broadway House, Sherborne House, The Congregational Church, The Methodist Church and The Marine Theatre.
Part 4 features a range of articles as diverse as ‘The Cobb’ and how it has evolved over the years, to ‘Coolrus’ a fine example of an Arts and Crafts ‘Caddy House’, as well as articles featuring other fine historic houses such as South Cliff, Fairfield House and Rhode Hill House.
Also included are QR-codes which give fast internet links to relevant web-sites, English Heritage listing information and colour photographs of the buildings. The example QR-code on the right is for The Town Mill and can be activated using a smart-phone app.
