Eype beach on a stormy afternoon - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT

The little Dorset village of Eype (meaning 'steep place'), lies on the famous World Heritage Coast just west of the market town of Bridport. The village dates back to the late 18th century and this local beach is normally popular with fossil hunters, fishermen and walkers, although when I took this photo is was about to rain and almost deserted.

Panorama taken overlooking Eype Beach near to Bridport and Seatown in Dorset, a short distance from Golden Cap viewpoint. A few miles along the coast to the west is the town of Lyme Regis.

Eype beach, part of the World Heritage Coastline of southern England, is popular for fishing, swimming and fossil hunting. Much of this coastline is rich in fossils from the Jurassic era including Ammonites. Many well-mapped walking routes criss-cross this area for ramblers to enjoy the outstanding views from the viewpoints along these cliff and across the rolling green meadows and scenic villages nearby.

Between Lyme Regis and Weymouth, exit the A35 road at Chideock, turning south towards Seatown and follow signs for Lower Eype and the beach.
