Prospects of summers by the sea – day trip to Lyme and Sidmouth
September 17, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 5:30 pm
Meet: Outside Bath Visitor Centre, Return approx. 5.30pm
In the summer months the Austens left Bath and headed to Devon. Why not do the same, after a week of Festival gaiety and gossip, and follow in Jane’s footsteps through delightful countryside to the sandy beaches and rugged cliffs of the Jurassic coast to spend a day in Lyme and Sidmouth. See the Cobb that features in Persuasion, stroll the promenades and ponder on the mysterious man thought by Cassandra Austen to be so perfect for her sister.
