On Thursday 19th July, The Fine Foundation Learning Centre, the Lyme Regis Museum’s prestigious educational space played host to the launch of the latest in a series of Historic Houses books detailing the history of some of Lyme’s most remarkable architecture.
David Tucker the Museum’s Director, welcomed the Mayoress Michaela Ellis and her consort Alan Ellis to the launch. Peter Coe, the Lyme Regis Society Chairman invited two of the authors, Keith Shaw and Audrey Standhaft, to speak about their inspiration for their articles.
Historic Houses part 4 features a range of articles on local buildings with fascinating illustrations of maps, diagrams and early photographs. Many buildings and places have changed little over the years and can still be spotted as you walk around the town.
Historic Houses part 4, priced at £1.95, is available at many local shops, including: Amid Idols and Giants, The Alexandra Hotel, The Black Dog, The Cobb newspaper shop, Felicity’s farm shop, Lyme Regis Museum, The Mariners Hotel, Serendip and the Tourist Information Centre.
